Ian, you are famous for pointing out your low trust in implementors. 
Given that, I'd tend to spend a few more words on this, to help them 
along a bit better.

A newer example (the RFC numbers are confusing, because RFC 5092 goes 
back to RFC 2192) would be the XMPP IRI/URI spec, see 

Also, please note that there may be nothing like an "IRI only" scheme. 
There is always the chance that in some strange context, a conversion to 
ASCII (i.e. to URIs) happens.
