In article <42D0F2EA.4090007@metalab.unc.edu> you write:

This may be a bug - ask the TAG to look at it.  Note that it doesn't
happen unless the user specifies it literally in a base URI, because a
trailing /.. is removed at the end of the algorithm, so URIs ending
with .. are never generated.

This is not just an XML question - HTML's <base> element must have
the same problem.  So presumably there are plenty of implementations
to test.
