IRIs - Question

I have a WSDL/XSD file whose targetNamespace is
http://gro├čerJob.german.com. The namespace URI contains characters
from german language, as you can see.
If use a designer tool to view and validate this WSDL/XML, what should
be the behaviour?
a) Give an error stating that the targetNamespace is not in an anyURI format?
b) Proceed to percent encode it and then validate the URI.[as per UTF-8 maybe]

The confusion here is that the WSDL/Schema viewing/interpreting in the
tool by a human would be difficult if I use all percent encodings in
the URIs. Shouldn't the tools detect the character set and
appropriately encode it. For instance, if I take a print out of the
document, I would prefer to view the native language, as opposed to
the encoded URIs.
Humans should be able to read the URI in the viewer in the native
language as-is, whereas any tools that intend to process it should
treat it as a set of octets, and handle them accordingly.

So the  Q is : Should a designer tool emit errors when it validates
the document with the above behaviour?
Please advise.
