Thanks for your comment.  The WS Description Working Group tracked this
issue as a CR053 [1].

The Working Group agreed that an absolute URI should be allowed, and adopted
a number of fixes to allow this to work, including better specifying the
relationship of {address} and {http location}, where {address} is a base URI
against which {http location} can be resolved if necessary.  We also have
added syntax to enable one to specify whether the XML value is to be
%-encoded or not depending on whether your data is trustworthy for use as
path segments (or full URIs) or not [2].

As we're preparing our PR documents, unless you let us know otherwise with
in two weeks, we will assume you agree with the resolution of this issue.
