Without much effort?
You have to parse:
<meta> tags for Content-Location
<meta> tags for Content-Base
HTML <base href>
...along with everything that implies (including correctly parsing the
HTML and XML tree to get past any comments, etc).
That is incredibly _non_-trivial.
What advantage do we gain which would outweight the disadvantages?
