[ISSUE 56] Request TAG guidance on preparing a response to the CURIE last call draft

On yesterday's call [1] I was assigned an action [2] to coordinate, with 
some help from Ashok Malhortra, the TAG's response on the CURIE last call 
document.  I believe that Jonathan Rees and Henry Thompson also gave 
informal expressions of interest in helping.  Earlier this month, I sent 
to the www-tag mailing list a note [3], in which I expressed a concern 
that the current CURIE  draft may not go far enough in prohibiting the use 
of CURIEs, either "naked" or in safe form, in places where existing 
specifications call for URIs.  I sent that note to the www-tag list in the 
hope that the TAG would consider whether they wish to adapt my comment in 
a formal response to the CURIE draft. 

Although this note is being sent to the public www-tag mailing list, it is 
intended primarily for members of the TAG.  I would very much appreciate 
your consideration of the above, and your guidance on what, if any, 
response you would like for the TAG to make regarding the CURIE last call. 
 In particular, I would like guidance on the issue mentioned above, as 
well as on any others that you think we should explore.  Thank you.
