The question I was really asking is not why the "online" appears in the
model for prop2. My question is really why prop1 and prop2 are different,
regardless of which is right/better.

The examples are shown below. Since prop1 is simply the typedNode form of
prop2, I would expect them to have the same model. Since they don't, I'm
left wondering:

1. Is the validator is wrong for one or the other?
2. Am I wrong in expecting the typeNode form to be truly equivalent to the
explicit form?

It seems like your answer about URI expansion might be saying that I am
wrong in expecting equivalence in this edge case where the type is not in a
