That would make the feature more flexible, although it means people needing to understand how to do relative links better than they might. Personally, I think that restriction is OK.

also "?", which I could imagine for docs that have built-in search capabilities, for instance.

I'm ok with this change.  I think the prep tool might want to try to fetch the derived URI if it knows the protocol scheme (warning if it doesn't), and warn (or error?) if the doc doesn't exist.
