Well, in this case it really seems that lots of organizations (including
OASIS) are getting it wrong. See for example
http://xml.coverpages.org/URI-IRI-Glue.html :
"According to the IRI specification, every URI is already an IRI."

Of course more importantly:
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3987.txt states in the third last paragraph
on page 10:
"Every URI is by definition an IRI."

And I think we should consider RFC3987 as authoritative on this matter.
