It seems to introduce new terms as well that are then not used elsewhere,  
e.g. valid absolute URL. The history section is better placed in the URL  
specifications I think.

"resolve a URL" was renamed to "resolve". Not sure if that's a good idea.  
The way "document base URL" was defined is reworded. It seems the new step  
4 is identical to the old steps 4-6 though.
