The requirement is that the value must be a IRI reference after applying
the IRI reference -> URI reference conversion algorithm. Since all URI
references are said to be IRI references, applying the algorithm makes a
difference iff a string that is not an IRI reference is converted to a
URI reference. What's the point?
