Use short CURIEs instead of full URIs

One small annoyance in the API right now is that link relations are full URIs. In JavaScript, this means that while you have _links.self and, you have to do _links[""]. This is a bit ugly, and can be confusing.

We should instead switch to CURIEs. These are an abbreviated form of the full URI that's easier to work with, but can be expanded out to the full URI if needed. They look like this:

    "_links": {
        "curies": [
                "name": "wp",
                "href": "{rel}",
                "templated": true

        "wp:term": [
                "taxonomy": "category",
                "href": "..."
                "taxonomy": "post_tag",
                "href": "..."
