A relative canonical URL can't be a good idea.  If there is more than
one "content URL" (in the terminology of the draft) this would result
in more than one canonical URL, defeat the purpose, and worse, this
could make googlebot angry.

The draft could s/SHOULD NOT/MUST NOT/, I don't see any good reason
to violate a SHOULD NOT, and if that's correct MUST NOT is clearer.
