Good question :-)

At first, I thought relative URIs should be relative to the current 
file, but then looked at how sourceresolving is done everywhere else in 
Cocoon: URIs are relative to the current sitemap (i.e. the context in 
case of the root sitemap): "src" attributes in the sitemap, includes in 
CInclude and XInclude, etc. AFAIK, only XSLT's includes and imports are 
handled differently because it's mandated by the XSLT spec.

So, I decided to use the standard sourceresolving mechanism in xconf also.

How does that sound?
