In doing our work with the RDFa folks, we discovered that M12N does not 
mention, and therefore does not permit, xml:base anywhere.  If you 
attempt to set base on an element using xml:base, the validator will 
mark that as invalid.  The question is: should we permit xml:base on 
M12N 1.0-based markup languages?  Or should we incorporate it into M12N 
1.1?   I can't begin to explore all the issues with this here.  The most 
basic one would be that xml:base is likely not supported in quite a few 
places where people want to use XHTML 1.1 documents (for example).  
Another might be that we would need to explicitly define what happens 
with the base element and xml:base collide.
