GRDDL transformations to get base URI?

After working around the lack of it a few times*, I'm pretty
convinced the input to a [GRDDL] transformation should be not
only the content but its base address. The XML infoset includes
the base address, in theory, but I don't think XSLT exposes
it by default. 


* e.g.

http://www.w3.org/2003/12/rdf-in-xhtml-xslts/grokGeoURL.xsl :
  <rdf:Description rdf:about=""> <!-- hmm... xml:base? a param? -->

http://www.w3.org/2000/10/swap/p3p/grokDataSchema.xsl :
  <xsl:param name="Base" select='"http://www.w3.org/TR/P3P/base"'/>

http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/grokIssues.xsl :
  <xsl:variable name="base" select='h:head/h:link[@rel="base"]/@href'/>
