I continue to be confused about this.  If we are going to have a URI
merging algorithm, I think it would better to refer to the one in RFC
2396 or 3986, and specify modifications to it, rather than restating
the algorithm with the risk of introducing inconsistencies.  The
algorithm in 3986 is more formally presented, and I think we could use
that one.  I think the merging algorithm in 5.2.2 can be used
unchanged, but allowing for parts of Base to be undefined.  The
dot-removal algorithm in 5.2.4 needs to be modified: step A should not
apply to leading "../", and step C should not apply if the last
segment in the output buffer if it is "..".
