Re: rel=CURIE in RDFa, but rel=URI in Link:

FWIW, RDFa is part of the XHTML 2 activity, and DOES own link/@rel.  We 
believe that the extension of @rel to use CURIE is completely consistent 
with the HTTP spec HTTP Link: space. The value space for CURIE is IRI.  
The lexical space doesn't really matter in this context - since any 
processor looking at link / @rel would need the value space version.  
What am I missing here?
