Context may matter for this one.

Whitespace must be escaped in the wire format of a URI. However, general 
onvention is that whitespace is accepted in the stored format (in an XML 
document) or in an API, if the tool which processes the string is willing to 
scan for and convert whitespace before putting it into the actual communications 
protocol. Ditto other characters which may require escaping.

So the RFC may not be the final answer, depending on exactly where the test is 
being done and for what purpose.
