I disagree xml:base implies "The Web" ...
It implies the domain of URL's  of which "The Web" is one of many components.
Nor does it require "The Web" it is both optional (works fine without it),
and fully function in a single hosted environment where the domain of URL's has no intersection with "The Web"
(e.g. filesystems, databases, in memory storage).
