please consider this scenario:

You have a stylesheet that is saved to disk somewhere and have a document
you want to include, this document can be described by a relative path to
the stylesheet. The stylesheet is now used to transform xml fragments that
are generated in memory, e.g. from a database query.

With your new default beaviour this would no longer be possible, as the path
now has to be relative to the source tree, which does not have a pyhsical
representation in the file system.

I think that this is a quite common use for stylesheets and the spec should
cater for this !

The second argument allows for futher uses (like the example) that extend
the default behaviour, and therefore I believe that the current form of the
document function has its validity.
