xml base

2 basic questions about XML Base :-) :

1. If I specify xml:base on XML fragment
 there is no way to reference local resources within this fragment?
 this is poor...
2. What if I want 2 or 3 bases? Impossible?
like this:
<my:a base="mylinks" href="some.html>
	<my:img base="myimages" src="img.gif"/>

I think that a reasonable solution will be
to allow alias ing xml:base like it is done with 
namespaces. May be something like this:
<AAA	xmlns="yyy.yyy.yyy"
<slink base="cot" href="xity" title="XLink visualiser"/>
<slink base="w3tr" href="xmlbase" title="XML Base Working Draft"/>
<slink base="w3tr" href="xlink" title="XML Link Working Draft"/>

Actually I am already sinning like this for quite some time.
It works, it is easy, I enjoy it.

If somebody (and probably quite a few) have problems with this
base elements can be specified individually:

	<base alias="w3tr" href="http://www.w3.org/TR"/>
	<base alias="cot" href="http://www.w3.org/TR"/>
	<slink base="cot" href="xity" title="XLink visualiser"/>
	<slink base="w3tr" href="xmlbase" title="XML Base Working Draft"/>
	<slink base="w3tr" href="xlink" title="XML Link Working Draft"/>

With best regards,

Nikita Ogievetsky
