relative instead of absolute system ids in XHTML 1.0 DTDs

I see in the following differences between the XHML 1.0 DTDs from
sometime around last June/last call and the recently released ones
(e.g., [1]):

(There were a few other changes, but I want to highlight the
system identifiers in the entity declarations.)

I see that, though the system identifier for the DTD remains
absolute, the system identifier for the three character entity
set files have been made relative.

I had made a comment on an earlier version when they were
relative giving my explanation for why I felt they should
be absolute, and I believe they were made absolute for the
last call version.  Were they made relative again on purpose,
or is this an unintentional change?

Thanks in advance for any clarification you can give.
