I'd like to get your revised URI library into GHC 6.4, which we plan to
release in roughly a month's time.  This is the time to make possibly
breaking changes to library interfaces, which we only do for a new major
release - minor releases never change library APIs.

So even if the URI spec isn't ratified yet, I think it might be prudent
to make the switch now.
