Yeah... I think I agree with this.  Just drop them altogether from 
XHTML+RDFa.  We don't need them for anything.  CURIEs are prefixed.  
Period.  They expand to IRIs lexically and URIs in the value space.  End 
of story.

 From a syntax perspective it is a little weird.  I think that the 
syntax becomes curie :  prefix ':' reference

and the datatype for @rel and @rev becomes curie | one of an enumerated 
list of values.
