Nice catch Gregg.  However, I don't think your proposed wording is quite 
right either.  I think with this datatype any string that starts xyz:, 
where xyz is not a defined prefix mapping, automatically falls through 
to being evaluated as an AbsURI.  and since an AbsURI can essentially be 
anything... it always gets treated that way.  I need to think about this 
a little more, but...
