In your example case, won't the absolute URLs (with the domain name) break also?
When moving to another domain there is a search and replace of some sort to be done anyways, or is my logic incorrect here?
But I also think that absolute URLs are better than the relative ones. Sometimes, for example, I want to find out which places refer to some page. Grepping for "index.php" is quite meaningless. Ok, in a dynamic environment with concatenated paths and so on it tricky also, but impossible with the relative URLs.
