Relative IRI Resolution


I have just wrapped my head around a very subtle detail of the spec 
regarding IRI resolution.
Say I'd like to have a node like this:

   "@context": {
     "label": ""
   "@id": "4711",
   "label": "Just a simple document"

Which has been retrieved from this URI:

Following the statements and definitions in sections "6.1 Base IRI" and 
"5.2 IRIs"
one could think that the resulting IRI is:

Most people familiar with URL concepts know or instinctively feel that 
this is incorrect
but from what I can see it is not defined in the spec.
I think the relevant reference is
This is even more important as is referenced
for the base URI resolution.

So I think it would make sense to put a reference to
in section 5.2 of the spec.
