Good idea.

I read it as 5.2 contains one algorithm with several parts: it says

[[
5.2. Relative Resolution

This section describes an algorithm for converting a URI reference ...
]]

"an algorithm"

It also says "this algorithm" later on.

==>

<http://example.org/> <http://example.org/a> <http://example.org/a> .

(and some optional, informational warnings about non-normalized URIs)

all due to Jeremy Carroll's IRI library - now in jena-iri - which is a 
standalone (no Jena APIs stuff) parser of IRIs.
