[2] quoting an email from Chris Lilley suggesting topics for this:

A certain amount of IRI 101 education is thus in order. I suggest (but feel free to change, of course) the following structure:

- The need (not just easy to type web addresses for non-English folks but also the query part for dictionary lookup, etc)
- The problem of guessing the encoding ('encoding of the page' not working for bookmarked queries, etc)
- Overview of what anyURI, XML, and XLink already require in terms of what can be put as an attribute value (ie, all the Unicode stuff) and what must be done to turn it into a URI, and how late that is done (on link traversal, not on content creation)
- Check at this point whose specs reference what by way of attributes that take URI
- What IRI adds (IDNS, character normalisation) and how easy that is
- Choice between older practice of specifying the whole copy and paste thing (hexify, etc) or newer practice of just referring to IRI section 3.1
- Samples of newer specs that move to IRI (XLink 1.1, SVG 1.2, what is Schema 1.1 doing?)

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
