Do you mean that only authors of EAI specifications are allowed to
include non-ASCII characters in their email addresses?

I'd also include IRIs for the equivalent of the <uri> child of the
<author> element in RFC 2629.

But not author names for cited documents? We could generalize to
"metadata about cited documents".

Again, do you mean that only protocol that are explicitly dedicated to
internationalization are allowed to include non-ASCII characters? That
might limit the applicability unnecessarily (e.g., it might be good for
protocols that include internationalization features to specify how
non-ASCII characters are used in those protocols).

As you mentioned, in most instances it would probably be good to include
not only the properly-encoded Unicode code points but also the code
point numbers or names.
