Then I'd be satisfied if the draft said the considerations for handling
characters in the path and query components are the same as those for
the "http" and "https" schemes. You could get further guidance from

  *   - the mailing list of the IETF IRI Working Group
  * - the mailing list of the IETF HTTPbis WG

I hope that helps,
