RDFa test suite addition

This is not an official comment nor is it anything that is vital for
RDFa deployment. It is a "would be nice to have" unit test.

I do not believe we have any tests for host-part relative URLs. We just
found a bug in librdfa last week that happened when someone was
specifying host-relative URLs:

For example, if someone were to specify a URI like so:

    <a rel="next" href="/pages/15">next page</a>

The correct behavior is to append the "/pages/15" part to the URL
host-part, not the document part. librdfa was wrongfully appending the
URL to the document part. Easy to fix, but I was surprised that none of
the unit tests checked that common behavior.

Just letting the rest of you know since I won't have time to write this
unit-test in the next two weeks. Feel free to assign an action item to
me on the telecon to get this in there.

If you'd like to check to see if your parser is doing the right thing,
here's a test URL:
