Thanks for your comments. I have removed this association in the latest version of the slides.
Sorry for the confusion, I didn't aim to make such a shortcut association and let people believe that IPTC will make use of CURIEs.
The context is that Tim B.Lee has mentionned yesterday this extensive discussion W3C and IPTC had on this topic. My goal was therefore
just to mention the kind of discussion we can have with other standardisation bodies on particular subjects (not saying that we
necessarily agree). But I agree that at this point, it will rather confuse the audience.

I agree and I'm even now writing some text for highlighting the differences :-)
Best regards.
