Here's another use case I thought of while lying in bed last night:

  --- bindings.svg ---
  <svg ...>
    <xbl:xbl id="myUse">
      <xbl:definition element="ex:myUse">
          <handler ev:event="xbl:bound">
            var use = evt.target.ownerDocument.createElementNS(SVGNS, "use");
            use.href = evt.target.getAttributeNS(XLINKNS, "href");

  --- test.svg ---
  <svg ...>
      <xbl:import xlink:href="bindings.svg#myUse"/>

    <g id="a"/>
    <ex:myUse xlink:href="#a"/>

This won't work under the proposed rule for resolving URIs, since the
element with ID "a" is in the bound element's document rather than the
binding document.
