I think disallowing action="" is not very helpful. There is likely existing
content that uses action="" and no <base> and there it's a waste of time to
change it, and moreover missing attribute is processed the same but is
conforming. Seems arbitrary.

If we want to inform authors of the weirdness with <form action=""> and <base>,
we should say that validators should issue a warning for <form> and <form
action> when there's also a <base href> in the document.
