Oops. I missed that. Thanks Troy if you can fix that. I won't be around to help
apply it for the next 10 days, so please Daniel or someone else do so if you can.

That was completely intentional. It's quite likely that a future development
might support more syntaxes beginning with "^", and then we would no longer
want a lone "^" to be interpreted as "repos-root-relative" because there would
be other just-as-likely meanings for it.
