You can expect the implementation to tell you what to expect, hence
"implementation-defined" in my earlier text (as opposed to

But I don't think the spec can say what to expect in all cases for all

I can't imagine an implementation going out of its way to give you
different answers anyway. But maybe the XSLT step doesn't have a
resolver, who knows.

All of this is of course the easy case. The hard cases is when there's
an XSLT step in the pipeline that generates a document that has the
base URI "toto.xml". But I don't think we're going to solve that in V1.
