So to emphasise my last reply: it would not be good to say that they must recognize the IRIs but need not interpret them properly. Or to say anything which could possibly be interpreted in this way. I don't see any reason to separate the L2V mapping from the IRI-datatype mapping and say that one of them is normative and the other not. That way madness, or at least confusion, lies.
