I think that a behavior that would make sense could be:
1) If a script inserts a module, this script path (URL or file system
path or whatever) should be the base of relative module paths.
2) If the script has no path, let the platform decide of the behavior.
In the case of inline JavaScript in HTML, using the HTML base URL seems
appropriate (which depends on the base element if present).

I would answer yes for inline scripts.

I would answer that if the requirer has a path, then this path should be
used. If it doesn't, it's platform dependent and in the case of HTML, it
would be the base document URL, which is dependent on the base element.

Does that make sense?
