This document motivates the need for clarifications of client behavior in cases of HTTP redirect to a content delivery network (CDN) when the redirected object contains relative references. This document focuses on HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) use cases, but it might be possible to generalize to other use cases. The goal of this document is to present the current status of things and to explore potential solutions.
