Change Proposal 003
6.2.1, the Yadis ID and XRI
"A Yadis ID MUST be a URL (or a URI or XRI resolvable to a URL)."
I agree that we want to interoperate with XRI at some stage, but this suggests that a compliant Yadis tool MUST have an XRI resolver available. Is that the intent?

>> Not the intent. The intent is 1) to place a restriction on both the form (URL (or URI (or XRI))) of a Yadis ID and 2) wind up with something that can be used in the protocol, which requires a URL. Looks like we have two alternatives: a note at this point in the spec or require a URL. The latter will not be friendly to our XRI and i-name collaborators. =Joaquin 2Jan6
Text has been added to make it clear that a Relying Party is not required to do XRI resolution.
