        Subject:        issue 437 proposal - base URIs for PASWA content

Hi all,

I think issue 437 [1] is a small one and below I propose a simple

PASWA [2] allows the transmission of binary data and uses that to allow
for transmission of web resource representations. 

For the general case of optimized pieces of data we should note that if
the optimized data contains a relative URI, the base URI is the same as
if the data wasn't optimized. In particular if we decide to identify
optimized parts using some kind of URIs, these URIs don't affect the
base URI of relative URIs in the optimized data.

For the Representation (header) element (or whatever equivalent we come
up with) we should say that it does in fact establish a base URI for
relative URIs contained in the actual representation and that the base
URI is the URI used by the Representation element to identify the
resource whose representation it carries.

Hope it's clear enough, 8-)
