Grahame and/or Lloyd,

In today's FHIR RDF teleconference, a question came up about relative 
and absolute URIs in FHIR references.

Must absolute and relative references be round tripped as is?  I.e., do 
we need to maintain the distinction between relative and absolute 
references when round tripping, or can relative URIs be turned into 
absolute URIs and vice versa?

I did not see any mention of normalizing references in the discussion of 
Canonical JSON:
