As far as I am concerned, link references in Web architecture consist
of URIs and relative URIs.  Not CURIEs and not IRIs.  Some data formats
will have intermediate forms for presentation and ease of data entry,  
as IRIs or CURIEs, but those forms will not appear in HTTP envelopes
and header fields because they are neither portable nor understandable
outside of their own small context.

Under no circumstances does (X)HTML(*) define any aspect of links
for the World Wide Web other than the format of data entry within their
own media types.
