The relevant brain cells may have died and I'm just confused, but I
thought that if the base URI is "http://example.net/foo" then

  rdf:about=""

Refers to http://example.net/foo, and

  rdf:about="."

Refers to http://example.net/

The RDF validator http://www.w3.org/RDF/Validator/ seems to agree with
me.
