Re: [widgets] Comments on Widgets 1.0: Packaging and configuration, 9.1 Processing rules

Hi all,

sorry I didn't jump in earlier, I was taken with entirely different  

François is entirely right in his evaluation of the way in which  
widget URIs work, which is to say that in a document at the root of  
the widget you can't treat <a href='/foo'> and <a href='foo'> any  
different. Or at least, not without deciding that we have our own  
rules for relative URI reference absolutisation, which I fervently  
hope we don't.

I think that there are two ways to resolve this comment:

  - drop the distinction that's in the spec between /foo and foo in  
  - make it very clear that that distinction exists only in config.xml  
(which uses paths, not URIs)

Since I don't personally see a strong use case for the distinction,  
I'm happy either way. Technically I have a small preference for the  
first option, process-wise I prefer the clarification.
