Having spent a bunch of time yesterday looking at the infoset as it
applies specifically to SAX, I think "DTDHandler" changes might
be more justifiable:  the XML parser isn't interpreting those URIs,
so the requirement that relative URIs be interpreted according to
that part of the spec (which I won't quote again :) can't apply.

But the infoset (arguably :) provides more support for my position
with respect to parsed entities:  in the ONLY case where a parsed
entity's system ID (URI) shows up, it doesn't get the funky treatment
Rob is proposing:

Aargh, please no ugly hacks, ever.
