xml:base IN TEST CASES
======================
I found it difficult to wholly automate the process of running the tests
because the different collections of tests used different conventions
with the base URI.
I prefered those that explicitly put the xml:base in the rdf:RDF
element.
Some used "http://example.org/", others used their own URL. 
At least each directory was consistent!

Those that did use an explicit xml:base surprised me by leaving the hash
at the end; making it a URI reference with a null fragment rather than a
URI - that seems to be conformant, but I wondered why not just use the
URI without the final hash.
