Anyway this is a very easy tweak for you to modify. If some stores doesn't validate their code to W3C is their problem... I don't have to pay their faults!!!
I really care about validation and a clean code, and since my store is crowded of internal links, I insisct that I need relative urls on my source code, and it will be not professional from your side to avoid providing us with such easy tweak.

This answer is logical for those merchants who never reviewed their duplicate contents in Google webmaster tools and even didn't submited their site there.
But please keep in mind to those who invest many hours per week to review their SEO, crawl health or duplicate content.... I see that the reason of this answer is not because crawlers will find problems recomposing relative links, but the problem is that may bring duplicates to webmasters who don't care or are not experienced....
Not everybody wants to run on an very-safe auto-pilot as you pretend to do. Perhpas we are not experts but we are advanced users, that like me I work full time with developing and SEO.
Tweaks are for those who know what they are doing, and think you have a pending tweak here for the freaks of clean code! Each time I open my store source-code you come to my mind... thanks for your ultra-safety!
