As far as I can tell the LEIRI requirements aren't actually an accurate 
description of what browsers do.

Note that the Web addresses draft isn't specific to HTML5. It is intended 
to apply to any user agent that interacts with Web content, not just Web 
browsers and HTML. (That's why we took it out of HTML5.)
