A reminder that the IPTC and its member News Agencies are using very
widely the IPTC's alternative to CURIEs and QNames, called QCodes.
The differences between CURIEs and QCodes are:
- The QCode spec requires that the URI corresponding to the alias
is a valid URI. The CURIE spec, IIRC, does not.
- The QCode spec explicitly allows the right-hand side not to be a
legal XML Name. I don't know what the CURIE spec says about this.
- While the creators of RDFa stated that the current mechanism for
alias definition is to be considered simply one of a set of
possible mechanisms, I think that it is currently the only
specified mechanism. We (the IPTC) rejected that mechanism as
too verbose and created, instead, our catalog.
