OK, then please make sure that Appendix B of the RDFa Syntax and  
Processing spec has definite statements about the value spaces of BOTH  
of your new datatypes, CURIE and URIorSafeCURIE. Being especially  
clear on the difference between the QName and CURIE value spaces, and  
the similarities or differences betweeen anyURI and URIorSafeCURIE  
value spaces, in this part of the document, seems pretty important.

Not that I understand this stuff all that well, but there seems to be  
so much potential for confusion that I don't think you can overdo the  
explanations here.
