I disagree with Roy,
Shouldn't he be the one who knows? He actually he made it into an abuse
by changing the definition of same-document references in the new rfc,

It would be nice to know how bad he actually thinks the abuse is.

It would be really cool if you would move the xml:base of the entry to
the div, but as you have 2 divs per entry I can imagine you don't want
to do that. Or you could change the base URI to f.e.
When/200x/2005/08/14/Java-Net-Terms.atom (even if that doesn't
dereference to anything)
