The problem with detached signatures is to create a stable reference. If 
it's a URL, then you have to prevent the resource from ever changing. Most 
uses of detached signatures are for creating "packages" of associated 
files where the reference to the file is relative and the signature 
document accompanies the file.

As far as the library's ability to dereference a URL to a resource, I have 
no idea what it can do, but I doubt it's terribly robust. I don't think it 
handles https for example.
