I do not think anybody in WHATWG hates the CURIE tool; however, the
following problems have been put forward:

	The CURIE mechanism is considered inconvenient because is not
copy-paste-resilient, and the associated risk is that semantic elements
would randomly change their meaning.

Link rot
	CURIE definitions can only be looked up while the CURIE server is
providing them; the chance of the URL becoming broken is high for
home-brewed vocabularies.  While the vocabularies can be moved elsewhere, it
will not always be possible to create a redirect.
