[Bug 1420] New: [FO] base-uri for collation uris


           Summary: [FO] base-uri for collation uris

If the collation is specified using a relative URI, it is assumed to be 
relative to the value of the base-uri property in the static context. 

We think that a different base is needed. For example, let's assume that a 
base URI is set to http://mydomain.org/CustomerOrders where I keep all my 
documents and that all collations are in http://collations.vendor.com/. 

If I write a query of the form:

for $i in doc("customers.xml")
where compare($i/name, "Doe", "English-AS-CS") = 0

I would like the two relative URIs to resolve against their respective 
different bases.
