[Bug 25919] unparsed-text-023 should not expect a static error

This is starting to look a bit messy.  XQuery 3.0: An XML Query Language says:

"It is not intrinsically an error if this process fails to establish an
absolute base URI; however, the Static Base URI property is then absentDM30
[err:XPST0001]. When the Static Base URI property is absentDM30, any attempt to
use its value to resolve a relative URI reference will result in an error

which seems to contradict F&O.
