It's valid for a feed to contain relative URLs with absolute paths; this can help avoid needing
knowledge of the server's hostname or SSL status.

For example, the URL of an article is allowed to be "/db/article1/body.html" instead of "".
The feed processor will interpret this relative to the base URL of the website.
