In that case, the meaning of the relative URI is determined by the context
(viz. the location) of the embedding document, *not* by its content.
This distinction is fundamental, though I admit that xml:base blurs it.

Certainly a reasonable "best practice", though of course not possible
in the case of non-sane documents.

Promises become binding when there is a meeting of the minds and consideration

two centuries of jurisprudence in this country; and so it is today.
