? I don't understand. Who has to 'resolve' a repository root?

I'm focused on aligning our HTTP requests exactly with RA apis.
Every RA api takes an ra_session object which represents the 'root' of
a repository operation. Granted, it's not necessarily always the root
of the repository, but I think we should preserve the same concepts.
The HTTP request should be against a URI that matches whatever
ra_session is anchored on; if a &path parameter is present, then it
should considered relative to the anchor.
