Use cases

Are there any use cases for namespaces where relative URIs are actually

Jonathan Robie's "playing around" scenario [1] is thought-provoking, but
not very convincing, at least for me.

Also, are there use cases today where people have really gone ahead with
relative URIs namespaces?

Other than fulfilling a dream of consistency, I can't see any good reason
to support relative URIs in namespaces - ever.
