It seems to me that this line of reasoning should lead to using  
identifiers that are contained in one string instead of splitting  
identifiers and putting the pieces in two places like CURIEs do.

(In fact, the declaration part of CURIE syntax has already been  
forgotten in examples sent to this mailing list.)
