Right, thanks.

Yes, that would probably be a good idea.

One further issue has arisen in discussion within the XML Core WG:  

In section 6.2 of your draft, we find
    Intermediate software interfaces between IRI-capable components
    and URI-only components MUST map the IRIs per Section 3.1, when
    transferring from IRI-capable to URI-only components.  This
    mapping SHOULD be applied as late as possible.  It SHOULD NOT be
    applied between components that are known to be able to handle

The Core WG likes that, and we wonder if there could be something 
like that for LEIRIs as well.  Would you consider adding an analogy of
that prose to section 7?
