Re: comparing IRI references

We will add a "good practice" note to the spec advising against the
use of confusingly similar IRIs as namespace names.  We will also
advise against using spaces in namespace names, because of the
problems with space-delimited lists (in particular, schemaLocation).
On the other hand, outlawing hex escapes completely would introduce an
incompatibility with 1.0 (which allows them) and we believe it is too
drastic a change.
