 If you want to provide a class for CURIEs, you should definitely stick to
 how the CURIE is officially defined. Otherwise, please don't call it a

 ''The following definition makes the set of CURIEs a syntactic superset of
 the set of QNames. It is comprised of two components, a prefix and a
 reference. The prefix is separated from the reference by a colon (:). It
 is possible to omit both the prefix and the colon, or to omit just the
 prefix and leave the colon. To disambiguate a CURIE when it appears in a
