A reminder that the IPTC and its member News Agencies are using very
widely the IPTC's alternative to CURIEs and QNames, called QCodes.
The differences between CURIEs and QCodes are:

-  The QCode spec requires that the URI corresponding to the alias
    is a valid URI.  The CURIE spec, IIRC, does not.

-  The QCode spec explicitly allows the right-hand side not to be a
    legal XML Name.  I don't know what the CURIE spec says about this.

-  While the creators of RDFa stated that the current mechanism for
    alias definition is to be considered simply one of a set of
    possible mechanisms, I think that it is currently the only
    specified mechanism.  We (the IPTC) rejected that mechanism as
    too verbose and created, instead, our catalog.
