Fair enough. Do you not feel that the note in 1.2.3 of 3986 covers our
use of the popular and historically accurate term "relative URI"?

      NOTE: Previous specifications used the terms "partial URI" and
      "relative URI" to denote a relative reference to a URI.  As some
      readers misunderstood those terms to mean that relative URIs are a
      subset of URIs rather than a method of referencing URIs, this
      specification simply refers to them as relative references.
