2.1.1 [XPATH] Section 5, Data Model

V0001:

The specification states:

 The namespace URI specified in the XML document can be a URI reference as defined 
 in [RFC2396]; this means it can have a fragment identifier and can be relative. A 
 relative URI should be resolved into an absolute URI during namespace processing: 
 the namespace URIs of expanded-names of nodes in the data model should be absolute.
  Two expanded-names are equal if they have the same local part, and either both 
 have a null namespace URI or both have non-null namespace URIs that are equal. 

MSXML3 and MSXML6

A relative namespace URI is not resolved into an absolute URI during namespace processing.
