I have added a paragraph as follows:

 This specification does not attempt to specify which text strings in a
 document are to be interpreted as URIs. That is the responsibility of
 each XML vocabulary. The question addressed by this specification is:
 given a relative URI in an XML document, what base URI is it resolved

I hope this provides the necessary clarification.
