Re: ISSUE-120: Ambiguous Situation with nested @rel where inner @rel is neither CURIE nor link type

Just my $0.02 on this:

I do think the spec is somewhat ambiguous on this particular point - we
don't define what it means to have a "valid @rel or @rev URI".
Specifically, we don't state what happens when the author specifies rel="".

I still do think that the following CURIE should be generated, per the spec:

<> dc:creator <ben.jpg> .

However, I also see specifying:

rel=""

as very different from specifying

rel="foobarrel"

In the first case, the author meant to stop chaining by specifying
rel="". In the second case, the author did not mean to stop chaining by
specifying rel="foobarrel".

All that is neither here nor there, though, as we don't have any
language in there to treat rel="" any differently from rel="foobarrel",
that I could see anyway.
