There are other use-cases for absolutizing links: in one of my projects 
we're sending a newsletter as an HTML email (only to users who want it 
;-) and in such a case you need to absolutize all links in the 
generated email so that the mail client gets correct URLs. The brute 
force way is to configure the base absolute URL somewhere, but a 
general mechanism might be useful.

Dunno if this is helps in this discussion, just wanted to point out 
that this http/https thing is not the only need for absolute links.
