I think the question is "are authors allows to use LEIRIs that are not 
valid IRIs in their content", or to put it another way, "are LEIRIs 
conforming syntax".

My understanding is that LEIRIs include defining such things as how to 
process spaces in URIs, must like the Web addresses document. But we 
presumably don't want authors actually putting spaces in their URLs, since 
that would be incompatible with contexts expecting space-separated lists 
of URLs.
