#117: conformance requirements in bidi document -- do they belong?
The document says "Bidirectional IRIs MUST be rendered by using the
Unicode Bidi IRIs MUST be visually ordered by the Unicode Bidirectional
Bidirectional Algorithm [UNIV6], [UNI9]."
There was significant discussion on the working group mailing list that
this advice should not be normative. If it is normative, it isn't clear
about to whom it applies -- who must do what kind of rendering? And if you
just leave off the "http://" in the first place, is what you're rendering
an IRI or something else?
What is the consequence of not following this bit of advice anyway?
