(is there a better URI?)

The status of the IRI document is described at: http://www.w3.org/International/iri-edit/  and there is a mailing list (public-iri@w3.org).

I think it would be "normative overlap" to have an IRI document say one thing and another document describe something else. This would be confusing and disruptive. The two documents should be reconciled. It might be necessary to define some other non-terminal protocol elements to accommodate HTML's needs, but the two documents can be integrated.
