  You must have an empty (and not NULL) query field in the xmlURI,
which is the reason why xmlSaveURI will dump it. It's needed to preserve
empty query strings:

paphio:~/XML -> ./testURI http://foo/?
http://foo/?
paphio:~/XML -> ./testURI http://foo/
http://foo/
paphio:~/XML ->

Solution should be to xmlFree the uri->query if empty, and set the field
to NULL,
