Let mew share w/you all what I told Mike -- I think that we should 
not only have the DC stuff used on the page, but should tie it to an 
ontology in DAML+OIL -- example, we should know that the contributor 
has to be a person, the publisher an organization, etc. etc. -- this 
would both demonstrate a good use of Dublin Core, and also show how 
we can use DAML+OIL to go beyond it -- I also suggest that those 
contributors who haven't already created home pages with content in 
D+O, can do so -- and that way our document becomes a good starting 
place for semantic web tools...
