My initial reaction is similar to Stuart's -- there's a lot to agree
with here, but

 1) I think we do better to keep QNames (shorthand for an *expanded
    name* which is a pair of an absolute IRI and an NMTOKEN local
    name) and CURIEs (shorthand for an IRI) clearly distinguished
    conceptually;

 2) We think seriously about an alternative to the ':' as the
    separator for CURIEs.

More later,

in haste,
