Well, you are referring to a document concerning -- nay, defining --
relative links. That document isn't going to say "these things are a
bad idea and shouldn't be used".

What I'm saying is that from a practical point of view, when writing
dynamic web applications, context-relative links are always the way to go.

I'm not sure how much more I can say on this topic and nobody else
seems to care so I'm happy to let the matter drop.
