which is part of the role of the test!

On the sub-issue of xml:base's inside the document (not on the root), I 
have code in the library that deals with this on my old assumption. If 
we change the assumption, I will change the library code, to deal with 
the new case.

I can then take an action to do the following refactoring to the library:
- extract xml:base code from embeddedRDF and put it in its own document, 
referenced via an xsl:import or xsl:include
- add the new document as a third part of the library, intended for 
transform developers

I tend to agree with Chime that we are more likely to get faithful 
renditions, with his version of the test.
Otherwise we are expecting transform authors to know the base issues and 
to implement such code.
