  xml:base can't apply to REC-xml-stylesheet-19990629, the PI is only
to be used if it appears before the root element, so no defines from xml:base
could ever affect it since it has by definition to be caried by an element
and only affect the subtree underneath.

  "The xml-stylesheet processing instruction is allowed only in the prolog
   of an XML document."

  I don't see how this can be confusing there is clearly disconnected set of
operation there.
