Do you want copy the IRI for the recent page or a random link in the page? 
Do you need the IRI as reference in a email, other application or database?

Till we find a common solution, I suggest you can copy the IRI from the address bar of the browser. I also found some browser plugins which transform the URI into the IRI format. Isn't the IRI format conversion a much more common issue? From the user's point of view, the conversion to **IRI** and **IDN** format mainly serves the readability of the link. 

*| IDN | Punycode |*

The sitemap.xml and the canonical link use the IRI format. Some search engines show the IRI formatted link others only the URI. It will take some time before we get a bigger picture, until then we can share our insights, workarounds and best practice. I hope for some feedback on how this has been solved elsewhere.

Regarding WackoWiki we must evaluate where we can (optionally) use the IRI format without breaking the application.

IRI format
  * numerated links in print handler
  * sitemap.xml
  * canonical link
