Re: issue with IRI equality

While we understand that it may be confusing to users that differently
escaped (but otherwise equivalent) IRIs are not considered the same
namespace name, it was previously decided (and is existing practice)
that namespace names are compared character-for-character, and it
would be too drastic (and controversial) a change to do now.
