I believe it would only violate the *exclusive* c14n spec (but that's 
the one that RDF requires, so it would violate the RDF spec).

(http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-exc-c14n/#sec-Limitations explicitly notes 
"Applications that use the XML being canonicalized may depend on the 
effect of XML namespace declarations where the namespace prefix being 
bound is not visibly utilized", which applies to any use of CURIEs.)
