IMO, the only way is to have a strict approach by requiring sources to 
be absolute in VSCs. That means we leave this responsibility to the 
user, and he will get a nice exception with a meaningfull message if 
ever he provides relative URIs to the VSC.

And if ever a sensible approach appears to resolve relative URIs, we can 
then relax the constraints in a backwards compatible way.
