I did mean numerical character references, and not HTML named entity 
references.

Should all numerical character references be replaced with their 
corresponding character?  e.g. "&#x0041;" would become "A".

For example, as the following:

htt&#x0070;://www.example.com/&#x0066;&#x006f;&#x006f;bar&#x002f;foo&#x003f;bar

When prepared for parsing would become:

http://www.example.com/foobar/foo?bar

Should this step of unescaping be limited to the &lt;iunreserved&gt; set?
