Still as individual...

I've taken another look at this.
3987bis defines the following terms (in alpha order):
create (a URI or IRI)
generate (a URI or IRI)
parsed IRI component
parsed URI component
sequence of characters
sequence of octets
Of those terms (or closely-aligned terms), the following are defined in
character encoding form
character encoding scheme
UCS-2 and UCS-4
I propose that we point to RFC 6365 for the latter terms and that we
make slight modifications to 3987bis for consistency with RFC 6365
(change "UCS" to "UCS-2 and UCS-4" or just "UCS-4" as appropriate,
change "character encoding" to "character encoding form" or "character
encoding scheme" as appropriate, etc.).
