I have just published a new version of draft-duerst-iri-bis.
It mainly incorporates the changes (addition of a chapter on
"LEIRI"s) discussed with the W3C XML Core WG.

According to my records, there is only one point that isn't
yet integrated, namely a proposal from Henry Thomson at
I'm still not sure exactly which way we should go on this,
but I don't think copying the exact text from what applies
to IRIs makes sense, because LEIRIs are clearly more exposed
to changes.

Regards,    Martin.

>This document defines a new protocol element, the Internationalized
>Resource Identifier (IRI), as a complement to the Uniform Resource
>Identifier (URI).  An IRI is a sequence of characters from the
>Universal Character Set (Unicode/ISO 10646).  A mapping from IRIs to
>URIs is defined, which means that IRIs can be used instead of URIs,
>where appropriate, to identify resources.
>The approach of defining a new protocol element was chosen instead of
>extending or changing the definition of URIs.  This was done in order
>to allow a clear distinction and to avoid incompatibilities with
>existing software.  Guidelines are provided for the use and
>deployment of IRIs in various protocols, formats, and software
>components that currently deal with URIs.
>[RFC Editor: Please remove this paragraph before publication.]  This
>is a draft to update RFC 3987 and move towards IETF Draft Standard.
