I come from Drupal, and find it odd that WordPress stores full paths to images and requires manual steps to update the site URL when migrating between environments. I cannot think of any reason for having it this way now or at any time in the past. It makes migrating between environments more difficult for first time users and it just feels sloppy. Everyone knows you should not use full paths in case your domain changes. Even the WYSIWYG wants me to set a full path by default when I link to my own content. Can anyone give a reasonable explanation as to why it is this way, and if there are any tickets open for storing relative paths instead of the full one with the domain attached?
