In the example of the Earth object at the end of section 21.1.3 [1]
containing the java applet, movie and finally the image, the xml:base
attribute is not needed on inner most <object> element for the image.
The xml:base attribute definition [2] states:

   “The closest parent element that has the xml:base attribute
    set (i.e., the xml:base attribute is inherited).”

Therefore, the xml:base should be inherited from the second level
<object> element.
