Hi Shane,

Following on from two discussions on the list about the use of 
@profiles, and confusion over the terminology "TERMorCURIEorAbsURI" in 
the current RDFa-Core draft, I'd propose the following clarifications to 
the spec.

define:

   URI
     URI  = scheme ":" hier-part [ "?" query ] [ "#" fragment ]
     A URI conforming to the Generic URI Syntax, as per section 3 of
     RFC3986 [1]

   AbsoluteURI
     absolute-URI  = scheme ":" hier-part [ "?" query ]
     An absolute-URI as per section 4.3 of RFC 3986 [2]

[1] http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-3
[2] http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-4.3

change:
[[
   profile
   a white space separated list of one or more URIs that indicate a 
profile or terms, prefix mappings, and/or default vocabulary 
declarations. See RDFa Profiles;
]]
to:
[[
   profile
   a white space separated list of one or more AbsoluteURIs that 
indicate a profile of terms, prefix mappings, and/or default vocabulary 
declarations. See RDFa Profiles;
]]
- note: s/profile or/profile of

change:
[[
TERMorCURIEorAbsURI
   A TERM or a CURIEorURI
TERMorCURIEorAbsURIs
   A white space separated list of TERMorCURIEorAbsURIs
]]
to:
[[
TERMorCURIEorURI
   A TERM or a CURIEorURI

TERMorCURIEorURIs
   A white space separated list of TERMorCURIEorURIs
]]

And possibly change mentions of "URI" or "URIs" to point to the 
aforementioned definition.

Best,

Nathan
