Actually I believe (W3C I18 WG should have the details) that the
(current) intention is that URI shouldn't have to be escaped in XML (or
HTML) documents and that the uri-quoting should be performed by whatever
agent is lifting the uri out of a document and passing it to the uri

the charmod document (still at WD stage) says that all new w3c
specs MUST follow this scheme:


This would mean that when generating XML (or taking a slighlty
revisionist view of history, HTML) one shouldn't quote the href 
attributes at all.
