Be careful; depending on what you call "Web content". For instance, I 
would consider the Atom feed content (RFC4287) as "Web content", but 
Atom really uses IRIs, and doesn't need workarounds for broken IRIs in 
content (as far as I can tell).

Don't leak out workarounds into areas where they aren't needed.
