I understand what you are *now* referring to, but the major thrust of your
argument at the beginning of these threads, and the major objections to it
were about *content* urls. Now by your own admission, you understand that
they are not post-processed, and so our objections to relative urls in
content are valid.

Now you are only talking about WordPress's own system urls and they are
generated on the fly anyway (which is why I say they change from
installation to installation), regardless of whether they are generated
with or without domains.
