> The IRI Spec[1] is from 2005, and it may be necessary to retrofit it to RDF. Eg, what is the relationship between "http://résumé.example.org" and "http://xn--rsum-bpad.example.org"? Are they the same resource or not? Note that SPARQL has something on that[2]...

SPARQL says "IRI (corresponds to the Concepts and Abstract Syntax term "RDF URI reference")"  

Is this strictly correct? That is, are IRIs in fact just URI references by another name? If not (as I suspect) can anyone briefly outline the points of difference?
