One of the URL techniques in the Widgets spec, using "/" as the first character in a relative address, works OK in widget workflows where the content is always wrapped in a ZIP, but in various Web Widget workflows, the widget contents are often exploded into a file system where the root of the widget is not the root of the file system or the root of the Web site. In those scenarios, you can't use "/" as the first character in a relative address, which means the entire set of files would have to be duplicated for each locale. Hardly ideal.

A slash a the front always indicates an absolute path. We are not
changing the semantics of URIs.
