We have debated this in our apps, too.  If some set of URLs are only valid
once a user logs in then do they have an implicit domain?

Plus, it sure is handy in documentation to say:

  To update your personal profile go to: http://example.com/myprofile


  To update your personal profile go to: http://example.com/user/<your id
