This is because REBOL does a "CWD ~" and considers ftp://somesite/
to be the user home directory. I think this is how FTP URLs are
expected to be; normal FTP clients do not use URLs though, and
consider "/" to be the site root and not the user home directory.
Making REBOL work the other way around in unpractical because you
wouldn't have any way to (automatically) knowing where your home
directory is by just using URLs.
