If the draft gets anywhere, it has to say very clearly that the header 
field(s) must only be used when the encoding is actually known. So input 
from the address field, form input, and in-browser conversion of IRIs to 
URIs are okay, but adding header fields for URIs that are already 
%-encoded is not.
