ISSUE-92: Last Call Comment: resolution of @about=""

http://www.w3.org/2006/07/SWD/track/issues/92

Raised by: Ben Adida
On product: RDFa

Johannes worries that @about="" will resolve to the parent directory of the
current URI, not the full URI:

"
section 5.5 step 4:

"if the element is the head or body element then act as if there is an 
empty @about present, and process it according to the rule for @about, 
above;"

As the type of @about is URIorCURIE, and "" (empty attribute) is no 
valid safe CURIE, it will be treated as a URI reference, which is to be 
resolved to the current base.

So e.g.

""
resolved to
http://www.example.org/foo/bar
results in
http://www.example.org/foo/

Is that what is intended?

Probable Resolution: base actually resolves to the complete URI.
