I think you can use CURIEs (W3C spec) for something like this (to 
shorten URIs with a common prefix). Also, XML Base (another W3C spec) 
would cover yet another number of use cases. And for the remaining use 
cases, I think maybe the better solution would be to look at how the 
directory structure and file locations are set up instead of adding 
stuff to HTML, because it’s likely an indicator that something’s wrong 
with that.

So I’m not really very enthusiastic about this.
