I did change the last part of the actual review that
I sent in yesterday.  fwiw, the last para now reads:

 At this time, while most of the XML Core WG would
 rather not have CURIEs continue to be proposed and
 used, we have resigned ourselves to the probability
 that they will go forward, and we have decided not to 
 make a formal objection.  However, we would appreciate 
 that our reluctance be brought to the attention of the 
 W3C staff at the appropriate time in the progression of 
 this specification so that no one can say that the XML
 Core WG had no problems with the idea of CURIEs.
