Test case 109 has this content:

<!-- This a NOT a valid XHTML document (due to @xml:base) -->
      <div xml:base="http://example.org/invalid/">
         <p about="">This is <span property="dc:title">Test 0109</span>.</p>
      </div>

I believe this test case is either invalid or unenforceable.  xml:base
is an expected feature in many environments (including most browsers).
 Even though some schemata for XHTML may not allow the attribute, its
presence will change the base URI.  Any DOM processor, like mine, will
not be able get the answer expected.  In fact, it shouldn't because
the base URI is determined by intrinsic processing of the document by
the browser and no other interpretation for an XML document is allowed
per the XML Base specification.
