Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (OBIX-154) 6.3 URI Normalization

     [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OBIX-154?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

William Cox updated OBIX-154:

Change text (WD38 line 966-975) as follows:

Line 966 replace with "We use URIs because they..."

Lines 970-975 should be a footnote or indicated as non-normative by inserting "NOTE:"; prefer footnote.

The section is not clear; commenter raises good points.  If the SHOULD is important to good implementations, retain it as normative text.

> "6.3 URI Normalization reads in part: 
> ***** 
> Vendors are free to use any URI scheme, although the recommendation is to use URIs since they have well defined normalization semantics. 
> ***** 
> Err, I don't think that makes any sense. ""free to use any URI schema, ....recommendation is to use URIs...""? Says the same thing. Yes? 
> BTW, do not repeat the normalization rules of RFC3986. Violates the DRY - Don't Repeat Yourself rule. They have been defined and it is best to send readers to the actual reference."
