It is not a complete implementation of rfc 3986, as it is only adding 
support for the empty path.
Rather than creating a new entry point (unsure if it needs to be a 
standalone check) the check was just added within xmlParseAbsoluteURI.

  If you remove the main motivation factor for doing 3986 properly,
how do you expect to motivate someone (you, me, someone else) to actually
spend the time ?
  At the moment libxml2 is coherent I think in its 2396 implementation,
I'm a bit vary of doing minimal half done changes just for convenience.
I'm not strongly objecting, but I wonder what's the long term impact...
