On the call today, it was mentioned that "7.1.10.3 Managing the
response" says, in the very last sentence:

"In either case the base URI of the output document is the resolved
value of the href attribute from the input c:request."

So, the answer is that it is an implementation bug if the base URI
isn't set properly.

It also means we probably don't have a test.  I'll make a test case for it.
