Dear Tomas,

Thanks for letting us know.  However, I'm concerned that your CURI for Compact Uniform Resource Identifier might be easily confused with CURIE (see http://www.w3.org/TR/curie/ ), CURIE Syntax 1.0, A Syntax for expressing Compact URIs, especially as they appear to be pronounced in the same way.

I have only taken a quick look through your editor's draft, but your CURI does seem to be something different from the W3C CURIE at http://www.w3.org/TR/curie/ - so you might need to consider changing the name again to something else to avoid causing confusion.

CURIEs are widely used in RDF Turtle data to form more compact URIs by abstracting the bulk of the URI into a prefix declaration that appears once within the file, allowing us to write things such as owl:sameAs and rdfs:seeAlso instead of http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#sameAs and http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#seeAlso

I'm sure that you're aware of CURIEs too but perhaps you overlooked this unfortunate similarity in names.

Best wishes,

- Mark

The name change is to better reflect the "compact" (term copied from RFC3986) aspect over the "data" aspect, though the data requirements must be fully supported.  I will continue to work and the objective is to have the First Public Working Draft by the 30 September 2014. I will change our wiki pages and load it to Github when appropriate.
