I apologize if I wasn't clear. Since this discussion is spanning a very
large number of communities, containing a number of people who probably
don't know the background on CURIEs and RDFa, I thought it would be best
to point out exactly where some of these discussions have happened.

Referencing information sources that would help better educate
individuals before joining into the discussion will hopefully keep us
away from re-hashing old discussions.

Specifically, Henri's comment:

"More generally, I think it would make sense to issue an erratum that
replaces all CURIEs in RDFa with the corresponding full URIs"

...seemed to imply (NOTE: I'm not saying that this was intentional!)
that this had not been discussed previously.

Just trying to help educate the large number of people out there that
may not be aware of these discussions. If you're already aware of these
discussions, feel free to ignore my e-mail. :)
