I don't think that's true: if you put <a href="">foo</a> in a document, 
you get the full URI http://www.example.org/foo/bar as that link.

I had a similar confusion at some point, that BASE referred to the base 
*directory*, but in fact all browser behavior (and I believe 
specifications) imply that a URI value of "" is the full current URI, 
not just the parent directory.
