I've been thinking about this this morning since I knew you would ask...
I don't think I'd have a problem with _all_ elements that support "base"
attributes returning an error if there is no base specified at some
level above them. If someone out there is actually using a profile with
no top-level base specified, they can always add <base>/</base> or
<base>.</base> to their top-level <stage>.
