This email begins the discussion for Issue #12 from our issues list [1].

Issue #12 is found at:
http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/BestPractices/HTML/2005-current- 
issues#curies-in-predicates

Briefly, the issue is about the datatype of the rel,rev, and property  
attributes. Clearly, the href attribute must be CURIE/URI, since URIs  
are required for backwards compatibility. For symmetry, it seems we  
have agreed that about should also be CURIE/URI (though this is  
certainly up for debate if people disagree.)

The question is: should rel,rev, property also be CURIE/URI, or  
should they be CURIE only. The general arguments are:

1) CURIE/URI: consistency with other attributes:

2) CURIE only: removes the need to use special syntax like  
[cc:license] for distinguishing CURIEs and URIs. This is particularly  
useful for some level of backwards compatibility with HTML-built-in  
values for rel, specifically rel=next, rel=prev, etc...
