XLink 1.1: XML Base confusion

Dear XML Core Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-xlink11-20050707/ section 5.4 notes "If
the URI reference is relative, its absolute version must be computed by
the method of [XML Base] before use." Due to the other problems in the
same section, and considering that XML Base refers to a different
version of the URI specification and requires behavior with respect to
illegal characters that is inconsistent with RFC 3987, it is highly
unclear what the implications of this conformance requirement are.

Please change the draft such that XML Base and XLink 1.1 are consistent
with respect to these matters. This will likely require updates to XML
