Looks like the feedvalidator didn't like having to validate xml:base  
values when it can't figure the base URI for the whole document  
(since doesn't have any in the case of direct input). I patched that,  
the example you gave seems to be validating nicely now, it seems.

I'll be sending my patch to the feedvalidator folks - I know that the  
direct input method is not officially supported by them but I hope  
they'll accept it.

I fixed that, too. And took the opportunity to update the  
feedvalidator to its latest version.

Thanks a lot for the bug report. If you find anything, don't hesitate  
to report it.
