The whole question is about what to resolve relative URLs against so I 
don't see how different protocols would help. Furthermore I think that 
it should be the component designers problem to decide what the 
behaviour should be for different uses of relative URLs for the 
component rather than the users problem.

The current behaviour is flawed as we already know from e.g. the case 
with the I18N transformer where dynamic resolution is used when static 
is what would have been expected. With lazy loading things get even 
worse as resolution during the setup phase also can become dynamic.

It is time that we solve this problem once and for all.
