RE: uri-comp draft necessary?

The main question for me is on which strings do you carry 
out the strcmp:

1.  The strings as they appear in (an) XML document(s)

2.  The strings processed in accordance with:

The first is wrong; the second is right.

Subject: uri-comp draft necessary?

At several points during yesterday's TAG call, Dan claimed repeatedly 
that URIs a and b are equivalent if (strcmp(a,b)==0) equal, otherwisen
 ot, end of story.  If we believe this, we can discard the uri-comp 
draft entirely right now and I won't put any more work into editing it. 
  Do we believe this? -Tim
