>Martin, W3C folks,
>   The IETF notes that the W3C's XML Core group recently asked
>the W3C's TAG for input on whether the IRI spec should be promoted
>within W3C specs at this time.  According to the following, the TAG
>has accepted this as an issue:
>We also note that the authors have recently issued a revision to the
>IRI draft:
>   Discussions within the IESG and IAB about this have revealed
>that there are significant concerns about the use of internationalized
>strings and protocol elements, which has implications for this
>draft.  In the short term, we would very much appreciate your not 
>promoting the IRI spec while these concerns are addressed.  We hope to 
>clearly state our concerns in a document within a fairly short period of
>time.  We certainly understand that this draft has been in the IETF for 
>two years or so, but it is part of a larger puzzle of which we
>are attempting to get enough community understanding to be able
>to proceed appropriately with all protocols using and exchanging
>textual protocol elements.
>Best regards, Leslie.
