I reviewed the "procedures" and the "guidelines" draft recently. Because I'm
traveling, I don't have them at hand. But I very clearly rememeber one
comment that I wanted to make:
The procedures draft, for the registration, should mention "character encoding
considerations" as one of the points that a registration has to list.
This would e.g. mention whether the URL uses UTF-8 (of course with
directly (e.g. applicable for URNs, which are however not covered by your
whether the URL uses UTF-8, and translation to what is used on the wire is
given (e.g. IMAP URL), whether UTF-8 is strongly suggested, but cannot be
