True, absolute URIs to "neighbor" resources are

The XBASE WD says that the value of  xml:base can be a
relative URI. 
See the section entitled "Resolving Relative URIs "

work. I would expect that apps/docs could still
benefit from some 
shorthand on the server side (in terms of convenience,
maintainance, and verbosity).
