Does specifying the baseuri in a module only take effect for lexically defined URIs or does it also apply to any URI values present in the system?

In particular does the xml:base property affect resolution of URLs inside a document? 

* When we convert an anyURI value from an element or an attribute to a string using the resolve-uri() function, does it take into account the xml:base property? 

e.g. consider a purchaseorder document with an xml:base property defined as "http://www.po.com" and has an "attachment" element that is of the anyURI type.

 Now given a query like,
 declare base-uri="http://www.some.com";
 for $i in doc("po.xml")
   return doc($i/PurchaseOrder/attachment);

 does the URI for the second doc() get resolved with the http://www.some.com prefix or the xml:base property http://www.po.com?

* When we have doc() or other URI resolutions inside direct element constructors which have an xml:base defined - does it affect the resolution?

For instance,

declare base-uri="http://www.moo.com";
<A xml:base="http://www.foo.com">

Does the URL "boo" inside doc() resolve as http://www.foo.com/boo or http://www.moo.com/boo ?
