Unfortunately this doesn't work because the relative URI has to be
expanded before it can be used for anything and the only thing it can be
expanded against is the request-URI of the HTTP request (in the case of
HTTP) which would mean that I might have something like

	http://henrik.com/some/endpoint/ebxml

and you might have something like

	http://dickbrooks.com/some/other/endpoint/ebxml

Which clearly are different and so the ebxml spec can say nothing about
how these identifiers might relate or what they might identify. In other
words, relative URIs are only useful when taken in context (which at
some level is true for all URIs btw.)
