I have updated the reference, as RFC3986 obsoletes RFC2396 as well as
the RFC2396bis drafts (our reference was basically broken).

After having talked with Martin, I do think that we should discuss
referencing RFC3987. The motivation for moving to IRIs is basically
explained at [2]. anyURI does cover IRIs, so changing the reference
would basically have little impact on our spec.

Mark, would you like me to open a new issue about this?
