Perhaps you may want the utility name as a keyword. I'll also note that
doing it this way does not preclude using the ISession adapter in
future. But, using the ISession adapter now means never being able to
get rid of it again.

I've done it as a work around to override a global utility forced upon
me. It's not too difficult.

I'll note that there is a difference between where things are published
(IAbsoluteURL) and where you should go to find their canonical

One problem I've found with using IAbsoluteURL and location proxies is
getting the object directly from the database. In this situation you
don't have an LocationProxy and IAbsoluteURL doesn't work.

It's pretty nasty when IAbsoluteURL sometimes works and sometimes
doesn't for what essentially is the same object.
