In Sec 4

The normative definition of GRDDL transformation mentions "the base IRI
of E" , but E was defined as "the head element".  Does "the head
element" have a base IRI?  A quick scan of the XHTML spec at
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/ shows no mention of base URI.  The XML spec
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/ mentions the "base URI of a resource".  Is
the concept of a base URI of an element supposed to be defined
somewhere, or is this an editorial error?

Come to think of it, I guess this question also applies to the section 2
definition of GRDDL transformation:
