Yes, this is correct.

I'm not sure if I do understand this. The term "relative-path" is 
defined by RFC 3986 in section 4.2 as follows: "A relative reference 
that does  not begin with a slash character is termed a relative-path 
reference." It is a certain type of a relative reference. There are 
other types of relative references that are not relative paths. These 
are listed in the above paragraph in addition to absolute references.

This means, section 17.5 does not differ between relative references and 
absolute references, but between relative paths, and other types of IRIs.

What is a little bit unfortunate is the reference to RFC3987 in the 
previous paragraph. In ODF 1.0 we have referenced RFC 2396, which is a 
predecessor of RFC3986, but changed this to a reference to RFC3987 when 
we were asked to clarify that ODF supports IRIs.

That is correct.

Well, this is probably one interpretation of the comment. But I have to 
admit that I have understood the comment as a hint that the attributes 
mentioned in the description do not match those define in the schema 
below the description, since it does not say that the attributes are not 
defined at all.

Again, thank you for your feedback. I believe we will discuss it in one 
of the next TC calls.

Best regards
