It's still not clear to me that the IRI support does anything but 
explicitly require something that was possible before.

I guess that means we'll eventually be seeing updates of a wide variety 
of specs that see relatively little use.  That's not all bad.  In the 
case of XLink, though, it really highlighted for me that even a spec 
that utterly failed to build a community is still sort of somehow 
marching along.

Perhaps XPointer 1.1 is next.
