Section 4.1 states:

An implementation may choose to treat any or all absences of a value for
the href attribute as resource errors. Implementations should document
the conditions under which such resource errors occur.

That's good. It certainly makes implementing XInclude on top of SAX or
StAX easier. However, this option is not currently called out in
features attributes of testdescr.xml in the test suite. I suggest adding
something like features="same-document-reference" so that
implementations that take advantage of this flexibility can easily see
which tests to skip.
