I could not find an agenda or minutes of that meeting in the www-tag
archives... I am surprised to see "the original question was, should XML
use IRI? Now that it has a definition that's been agreed upon, yes, they
should".

As XML and most formats based on XML allow use of non-Unicode encodings,
allowing IRIs in such formats would make the formats inconsistent with
the architectural requirements set forth in the reference processing
model http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-charmod-20050215/#sec-RefProcModel
and http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-charmod-20050215/#C014 in particular.

I don't think the reference character processing model should be changed
and it seems inappropriate for the TAG to encourage creating formats
that violate absolute requirements of W3C's own Character Model for the
World Wide Web. So I don't think the TAG's resolution should be as cited
above.
