I agree that #2 may be necessary; we are otherwise
mandating some degree of URI understanding within a
c14r. Language within the xmldsig spec can justify
why relative URIs are bad.

I could accept #1 if the spec provided a precise but
simple pseudocode algorithm for determining whether
a URI is relative or not. Are URIs always URLs?
