I've been reviewing the 12th March draft [1]. There are a number of
properties that don't have examples of their usage. I think the
specification should have example uses of every property, particularly
those that might be underspecified or documented elsewhere.

This is true of properties such as dct:accrualPeriodicity,
dct:spatial, dct:temporal, etc.

The Dublin Core have some general guidance which might be referenced
(or used to create examples. I've also recently learnt that there are
some standard accrual periods [3].

Additional examples will help ensure that users create more consistent metadata.
