I recently noticed that the OASIS XSLT test suite makes use of 
"relative" namespace URIs in a number of cases. However, in all the 
examples I inspected, this did not appear to be necessary. Most of 
the time it was either something like using www.example.com instead 
of http://www.example.com or using something like "Name" instead of 
thinking of a full URI. NO case I looked at seemed to actually need a 
relative namespace URI.
