Layers = bureaucracy?

Time is on XML 1.1's side:  even Java is only just reaching Unicode 3.2
just as Unicode 4 is released. So we shouldn't impose a great urgency,
or take instant success as a measure.  

IETF has had a problem coming to grips with non-ASCII characters in
protocols.  Internationalized domain names are at least five years too late.
Ultimately, IETF has to go UTF-8 throughout IMHO. 

I don't know why they just don't adopt XML Schemas/XPointer/Charmod
anyURI to break the impasse for now, but with a warning that comparisons
may cause trouble, and a statement that  when IRIs have their RFC, that 
RFC will supercede anyURI.
