That'd take care of most of my arguments regarding base URI contexts,
though I'd still two key questions:

1) What's the base URI of a defaulted attribute?
2) What to do when there's no base URI?

Answer those two, and I think we can trust applications to do their own
absolutization, leaving parsers with a safe but unchanged literal approach.
