Dealing with IRIs
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Currently, origins in the archive are identified by their IRI, such as this one: https://archive.softwareheritage.org/browse/origin/https://gitorious.org/systemy-zdarzeniowe%C4%85%C5%9B%C4%87/systemy-zdarzeniowe-gitorious-wiki.git/directory/

However, database schemas, variables, APIs, specifications, and documentation refer to them as URLs.

IMO, the easiest solution would be to keep the current format and names, and just update the specifications/documentation to mention they are actually IRIs

I'm fine with switching to IRIs in the doc, just please expand what it means on first use (with a mention like "they are like URIs but"), as I don't think the acronym is that well-known yet, especially in the US.
