XLink 1.1: "URI reference" "checking"

Dear XML Core Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-xlink11-20050707/ section 5.4 notes
"Because it is impractical for any application to check that a value is
a URI reference, this specification follows the lead of [IETF RFC 3986]
in this matter and imposes no such conformance testing requirement on
XLink applications." Please include specific reference to the section of
RFC 3986 that proposes this, and include a note why it is "impractical"
to perform such a check.
