Section 4.1 states:

An implementation may choose to treat any or all absences of a value for 
the href attribute as resource errors. Implementations should document 
the conditions under which such resource errors occur.

That's good. It certainly makes implementing XInclude on top of SAX or 
StAX easier. However, this option is not currently called out in 
features attributes of testdescr.xml in the test suite. I suggest adding 
something like features="same-document-reference" so that 
implementations that take advantage of this flexibility can easily see 
which tests to skip.
