--- Comment #4 from Michael Kay <mike@saxonica.com> ---
As regards your example, I think this rule:

If $relative is an absolute IRI (as defined above), then it is returned
unchanged.

is intended to take precedence over this one:

A dynamic error is raised [err:FORG0002] if $base is not ... a suitable IRI to
use ...

I agree that isn't necessarily clear in the spec.

Is this what the issue is here?

As regards the definition of a "non-hierarchic URI", I don't want to attempt to
publish any kind of interpretation or clarification of the RFC: if timbl thinks
it's a good enough specification, then it's not for me to say he's wrong. If
there's more than one interpretation of what the term means, then I'm happy to
say that you can use whichever one you want. The RFC states in 1.2.3
"...relative references can only be used within the context of a hierarchical
URI", and we are merely referring to that statement, not attempting to amplify
it.
