The former (b%c3%bccher.example) is allowed per URI spec
(RFC 3986), so any claim that this is not a 'real' URI
is weird. It may not yet be supported very widely, but
that's a question of time. Moving in this direction is
the right thing to do, because after all, the U in URI
stands (potentially among else) for uniform.

In the meantime, the IRI spec allows conversion to
xn--bcher-kva.example. Also, for the time being, I'd
suggest using the later in a general context. (The former
is very helpful internal to implementations, to say
the least.)
