ISSUE-29: how is uri parameter of the open() method resolved

Currently it is unclear how the URI parameter of the open() method is resolved. 
The source of the editor's draft says it's resolved against window.location.href 
but that might be incorrect given that <base> sets window.document.baseURI and 
at least one browser uses that...

How does it work with xml:base? Should you look at document.documentElement.
baseURI instead?

(It might be a bit strange to look at the document object's baseURI given that 
the object is not really bound to it...)
