I'm still sorting that out with him off-list, Ryann. :-) I still say it's a lot of work outside of the WP workflow to expect inclusion in core, but that's just MHO.

I think what Marcus is trying to say here is create content/changes/modifications in dev, send it to staging where qa takes a look at it "live" not as "draft", then when it's all good, the content/changes/modifications are pushed to production. Which is why you don't need to generate content from the production site because content generation starts from dev.

I'm guessing that for Marcus, the clients wants to be able to "preview" 
the "live" site before actually "publishing" the content/modifications to the public. DEV is for Marcus, STAGING is for the client/qa, PRODUCTION for the world.

Which is why he wants to be able to use root relative urls.
