Ian,

Thanks for taking the time to go through this! It's a bit unfortunate
that the HTML is laid out in this slightly non-logical way, because a
more straight-forward layout wouldn't have to use CURIEs, only the
striping with RELs.

Your markup reveals at least one bug in the RDFa Javascript
implementation, regarding nodes where there's a REL and an ABOUT (it's
making a non-sensical statement with the same subject and object.) I'll
have to fix that.

Glad to hear that you like the new striping feature! We do think it's a
nice addition that makes CURIEs important only in edge cases, like the
HTML layout you point out.
