It's <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-iri/2007May/0000.html>.

You should simply drop this effort and use IRI References instead. There
is a high cost associated with yet another notion of resource identifier
technology, while the value is near zero, especially since you do not in
any way attempt to standardize common error handling for e.g. \ chars in
the relevant contexts. Simply prohibit anything but IRI references and,
if necessary, specify "utf-8-percent-escape all disallowed characters"
as error recovery method.
