At [1] you commented on the XML Base PER [2] saying that 
the term XML Resource Identifier was not well defined
(e.g., soggy, built on sand).

This started quite a process (several, in fact, some of
which turned out to be dead ends).  At the present time,
our plan is to:

1.  Change terminology to talk of "legacy extended IRIs"
or LEIRI's.

2.  Have LEIRI's defined by a revision of the IRI RFC.

3.  Change XML Base (and XLink 1.1 [3] and probably other
XML-related specs) to reference the definition of LEIRI's 
in the IRI RFC.

We will have to wait to move XML Base and XLink 1.1 forward
until the revised IRI RFC is referenceable, but at this time
I'd like to ask you to see the definition of LEIRI in the
latest IRI draft at [4] to see if this will address your
