That is an example where the context _is_ given (by the URI being on an
xhtml link attribute with rel="stylesheet")
Having xml:href is irrelevant to that case.

What we are asking to see is an example where it is useful to know that
something is a URI (because it is in xml:href) where you _don't_ have
context by knowing what the containing element means.
