Thank you for your notes and discussion on fn:resolve-uri.
The WGs discussed your comments on Feb. 28 and decided that
implementations shd have the freedom to use the algorithms
described in RFC 2396 or RFC 3986.  They decided not to specify
the process of uri-resolution too tightly but allow implementation
freedom in how they carried out the resolution.

Please read the revised description of the function in the Last Call
version of the F&O spec which is scheduled to appear early next month
and let us know if you are satisfied with the resolution.

All the best, Ashok
