I'm pretty sure that question was raised before on this ML, but, after
a cursory look, I cannot find any reference to it.

There is no way to fix this for the time being. I can think of two

1. We could add a hook just before inserting included file in the master
   document, so you get a chance to rewrite links yourself.

2. We could do that rewriting every file link with a relative path

Second option only makes sense if the behavior you suggest is always the
one needed. We may need some more feedback about this.

Also, it could fail for some link types, when the path is not obviously
a file, e.g. [[foo:a/b]]. IOW, if implemented, we would have to limit
ourselves to "file:" links.

OTOH, the first solution is easy to implement.
