I have to say I'm not sure about the implementation question.  We
really do need to find some examples of specs. which
 a) refer to xml:base (the REC);
 b) behave as the PER says they should.

Are we saying that existing behaviour doesn't need to have changed?

I guess this test from the xlink test collection is relevant:


and you can see the result of norm's showxlink processor [1]:


Paul, I guess you should go ahead and send the Transition Request, but
we'll have to have a story ready in time for the call.
