I was testing a local document prior to publishing live, but using the 
absolute reference to Respec. So hard to pass a URI.

But as I mentioned in a part of the thread that crossed with this part, 
Shane's suggestion at the tail end of a telecon to force-refresh fixed 
it. I just hadn't expected that that should be necessary. So no need to 
spend time investigating.

But nonetheless felt need to push back on "just submit a pull request" 
because that is a highly unrealistic expectation for most users of 
Respec. I have a couple times tried to learn the Respec code in order to 
submit pull requests but quickly got lost; there is no hope of taking 
time to do that when I'm trying to get a publication out under pressure 
of committed dates.
