Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: It turns out that in practice regular authors have no problem with
the verbosity here. It's only us geeks who get offended by it. (I was really
surprised by this when I saw it in the lab. I had originally done the
reverse-DNS thing to address this problem, as I think it does it quite neatly,
but it turned out to be quite unnecessary.)

In practice this will be a non-issue. The only place you will regularly see
URLs is the itemtype="", but those can be made short by vocabulary authors if
that is desired, and they will be relatively rare anyway (at least compared to
the number of other URLs in Web documents). Properties will almost always be
short names, either when using common vocabularies, or when using untyped
vocabularies for personal adhoc use. The use of URL property names is expected
to be a rarity and is only there to enable extensions.
