RE: VoiceXML 2.0 spec quesiton/errata

Thanks. This at least makes the case unambiguous. However, this makes the
convention even more confusing as this is obviously an error (fetchaudio
must point to a sound file to make sense) so I still think a clarification
is in order.  However this RFC which I missed does imply that the right
behavior is a semantic error (not a parsing error) and it should be ignored,
so I guess it does what was intended in the end. Also rfc3986 is not
referenced directly although it may be an indirect reference.

In and its predecessors an empty
string is considered a same-document reference, so if the VoiceXML
document is at, fetchaudio="" would
likely be equivalent to fetchaudio="example.vxml".
