Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3432) ODF 1.2 Part 2 MustUse "IRI" and "IRI-Reference" Consistently

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3432?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21579#action_21579 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3432:

Since we don't use anyURI here in ODF 1.2 Part 2, because the Reference is not that kind of datatype, we need to say whose grammar we are using.  At the moment, the only reference we can make to an approved standard document is [RFC3987].  So the choice to rely on a working draft at W3C seems irrelevant here, and the W3C already concedes that they are not fixing their anyURI on the specific syntax of [RFC3987], I don't think we should be calling it an IRI if we mean W3C anyURI.

The problem, of course, is that W3C does not specify rules for resolution of anyURI or actually mapping ones to IETF URIs.  

The only way I know to stay out of that war is to stick with [RFC3987] specifically and not chase a W3C draft that may be irreconcilable with [RFC3987] and [RFC3986].

But if we choose to do so because we think that is making our life easier, I suggest we stop using IRI and referencing [RFC3987] and call them XSD anyURI values instead.  We still have to decide what XML Schema Datatype specification we will reference in that case.  

I see there is a needs-discussion on here.  Good.  I will make the changes I promised after the last call and leave the needs-discussion there.

>             Fix For: ODF 1.2 CD 06
>  1. In ODF 1.2 CD05 Part 2, 5.8 References, there is mention of IRI, along with some recommendations that are imprecisely stated concerning absolute IRIs, relative IRIs, the use of "./", and other matters that are imprecise.  The rules for IRI references in [RFC3987] are sufficient.  Notes might be useful in pointing to limitations that apply to IRIs in terms of excluded characters and in dealing with single-quote and "&" occurrences that may be part of the IRI itself.
>  2. In ODF 1.2 CD05 Part 2 there is also mention of IRI as a text operand to the HYPERLINK function (sectin 6.11.3).  The relationship of that use of IRI needs to be clarified.
>  3. There may be similar clarification required in treatment of IRI in the context of the FILENAME Info_Type in the CELL function (section 6.13.3).
