Has anyone considered having an URI in an entity in order to avoid typing it
over and over?
e.g.
<!DOCTYPE html
<!ENTITY myVocab "http://www.example.com/vocab/" >
>
And later
Property="&myVocab;myPred"?

So that is one disadvantage of URIs: they are long.  In fact they are so
long that people have gone to the bother of inventing additional syntax
to avoid having to write them out.
