As I mentioned in another email, leverage the xml:base="" attribute part of
the XML spec.  That provides the base URI with which all relative URIs would
be resolved.  It's dead simple, obvious, and less error prone than one slash
vs. two.  Best of all, we don't bastardize any specs.

The point of my "yawn" example is that braindead mistakes happen.  It's best
to make it really obvious what the problem can be.
