Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3440) ODF 1.2 CD05 Part 1Needs anyIRI datatype

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3440?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21781#action_21781 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-3440:

This proposal does not forbid any valid URIs or valid IRIs.  It forbids anyURI values that are not valid [RFC3987] IRIs.  If there is anything in this proposal that does not accomplish that, I will repair it.

In effect, this proposal IMPLEMENTS what Draft XSD 1.1 says we can do, if XSD 1.1 becomes adopted with that language.  So this proposal is also future-proofed.  (Thanks for providing the references to that material.)   I see no reason to borrow language from XSD 1.1 that is incompatible with the current language of [xmlschema-2], which is our normative reference.

The only significant change that could happen is that [RFC3987] is replaced.  There is indeed a project to produce a combination of [RFC3987] and [RFC3986], perhaps with extensions -- I lack information about that, as a future RFC.  That is too speculative at this point, and we can deal with that when it happens and to the extend it makes any difference for ODF.  Also, if you think about it, changes in RFCs that would impact existing IRI/URI resolvers will not happen quickly nor is it likely that anything will be broken in [RFC3987].  They are not going to break the web and it is unlikely that they will bread ODF documents that stay within the provisions of [RFC3987].   In that regard, I find the IETF a serious trustworthy and reliable normative source with regard to safeguarding interoperability over time.

> The rules for IRI references are slightly different than the rules for anyURI.  In particular, anyURI accepts ASCII characters that are excluded from IRI references by [RFC3987].
> Rather than qualify the use of anyURI to be specific to IRIs every place that anyURI is used in the current schema, it is recommended that this be handled in one place by introducing an anyIRI datatype that is  derivative of anyURI with an additional pattern constraint that eliminates the ASCII-corresponding characters that are excluded from IRI references in [RFC3987].
