This decision has the advantages of being coherent with the namespaces
and making the comparison between semantic attributes easy to test with
XML tools such as XSLT.

The drawback is, of course to be incoherent with a vocabulary such as
RDF that accepts relative URIs, but RDF would still have been
incompatible with XLink since it doesn't know about XML Base...

Considering that there wasn't any perfect solution, yes, I do accept
this decision ! 

Thanks for taking my comment into account.

Eric.
