I think so.  I also think that Steven suggested we just conflate the 
collection of values (@property has some defined values now that are 
disjoint from the set @rel has).  Conflating the values doesn't really 
change anything in terms of the vocabulary.

Well - I think in the CURIE definition we would call it the "default 
prefix value" - in other words, the value to use concatenate with the 
reference when no prefix is supplied.

CURIEs talk about the /default prefix/ and /no prefix/ independently so 
someone could do clever things.  We don't need to do clever things 
here.  I think it would be fine in XHTML+RDFa to say there is no default 
prefix per-se.   There are some reserved /reference /values, and those 
map to some pre-defined URIs.  End of story.

I believe we should.  I don't think it adds anything.
