I've read it, and don't see any issues for us around CURIES.  A CURIE
looks like a QName, but with fewer restrictions, and can be used
(wrapped in square brackets) in some contexts where a URI is allowed;
contexts allow only CURIES with no brackets.  Unlike QNames, they don't
inherently require that the prefix be declared in an xmlns:foo attribute
(though it seems that RDF/A in particular *does* require this).

The only issue I see is the type attribute, which specifies the XSD
type of a stretch of XML content; it's usually applied to an XHTML span
element.  I'd recommend that xsi:type, which has the same semantics,
be used instead.
