           Summary: [XQ1.1] Use of the term URI in introduction
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Member-only Editors Drafts
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XQuery 1.1
        AssignedTo: jonathan.robie@redhat.com
        ReportedBy: oliver@cbcl.co.uk

Section 2 of the spec contains the following definitions:

[Definition: The in-scope namespaces property of an element node is a set of
namespace bindings, each of which associates a namespace prefix with a URI,
thus defining the set of namespace prefixes that are available for interpreting
lexical QNames within the scope of the element. For a given element, one
namespace binding may have an empty prefix; the URI of this namespace binding
is the default namespace within the scope of the element.]

[Definition: Within this specification, the term URI refers to a Universal
Resource Identifier as defined in [RFC3986] and extended in [RFC3987] with the
new name IRI.]

This implies that in-scope namespace URIs must be valid URIs according to
RFC3986/3987.  However it seems that we have relaxed this condition and
namespace URIs need only be strings.  The first definition should probably
changed to:

each of which associates a namespace prefix with a namespace URI

and also define "namespace URI" to be a string that may or may not actually be
a URI.
