Subject: Re: [docbook-publishers] Groups - DocBook Publishers SC modified

Thanks, Dave. We are certainly planning to donate the rnc and rng for 
dc, dcterms, dcmitype back to dublincore.org. I would appreciate folks 
looking over those schemas as well to make sure I haven't modeled them 

Thanks and best regards,

Norm expressed concerns about the semantically equivalent elements in the standard (dc:title, in particular) and the fact that dc:title might not be the same as db:title. This might make processing difficult. Perhaps we should do an either-or model? Jim has no problem with that (nor does Keith). Scott to attempt this.
