Fair enough.

but I'm intrigued about your point on a non-absolute base URI being supplied.
The spec says that the function expects it to be absolute.
So I was checking this first, and raising FORG0002 if this is not the case.

I guess this depends upon the wording "expects". To me, if a function "expects"
an argument to be X, then it is an error if it is not an X (in which case
FORG0002 is the most appropriate message).

And if it doesn't mean that, then I'm at a loss to know why it is mentioned at all.
If it is intended to allow a relative base for use with algorithms other than
RFC 3986, then I think the word expects should be dropped (or perhaps: "expects
$base to usually be .."
In which case, I would raise FORG0009 without attempting resolution, as I use
the RFC 3986 algorithm.
