I'm not sure if you're correct about those differences, but even if you  
are they are not the only differences. E.g. LEIRIs perform normalization  
if the input encoding is non-Unicode. URLs do not. URLs can encode their  
query component per the input encoding (and do so for HTML and some APIs).  
LEIRIs cannot.

(Also, I'm not sure if the WHATWG list is the right place to discuss this  
as the editor of the new draft might not read this list at all.)
