Summary: Ready for publication as a BCP but with nits to consider during the approval process


Neither the document nor the shepherds write-up acknowledge or explain the replacement of RFC6838 with RFC3986 for a reference for specifying fragment identifier syntax and semantics (hence dropping the reference to 6838). It would be nice to have something captured in the record that supports/explains this change.

Near that change, there is a typo, currently saying "fragment identiers' syntax" (should be "identifiers'")

It might be good to capture in the "Note to Readers" that the RFC Editor should also remove Section 6.3 (URIs) since all the references to them will be removed with the removal of this Note.
