A number of editorial comments:

1. 'space character' is not defined
2. 'URI character' is not defined
3. It's not clear to me whether the algorithms in sections 2 and 3 are
meant to be applied only to "valid Web addresses" -- please make this
clear, one way or the other.  So, in particular, if I try to use the
result of the following Python expression in an HTML5 document as the
value of an href attribute, what does this document say should happen?

   "http://www.example.org/zero"+chr(0)+"here/"

Or (and this would presumably only be different if you adopt my LEIRI
request):

   "http://www.example.org/combiningChar"+unichr(0XD800)+"here"
