The history is deep here, but it probably boils down to the fact that
passing relative paths thru the RA API simplified interaction with the
client and working copy logic which also tended to deal with relative paths
while crawling around, and with the editor API which accepts paths relative
to the root of the edit. Also, back in the day, the client/WC layers didn't
know the repository root URL, so calculating a repository abspath would have
required round-tripping the server.
