Even if you make it required to use a full URL, some consumer somewhere 
will allow relative URLs, and then people will start using them, and 
before you know it you have to support relative URLs everywhere.

For example, see the Refresh and Location HTTP headers. They are 
required to be full URLs, but yet people return relative ones all the 
time, so browsers have learned to deal with it.
