Resolving IRIs for Resource Documents

State:
CLOSED
Product:
SVG Tiny 1.2
Raised by:
Doug Schepers
Opened on:
2008-05-17
Description:
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGMobile12/linking.html#externalReferences states:

[[
The rule for SVG is that documents are considered to be unique based on string comparisons of the full IRI after resolving relative IRIs into absolute IRIs and after taking into account HTTP redirects (i.e., use the post-redirect IRI instead of the original source IRI).
]]

Robert O'Callahan notes <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2008May/0033.html>:

"This seems to imply that if I have a document that contains many resource
references with the same relative URI, I have to perform an HTTP transaction
for each one to see if any of them result in a redirect. Wouldn't it make a
lot more sense to use the pre-redirect URI as the dictionary key, so I can
avoid a lot of network transactions?"
