The W3C HTML working group is developing a new version of HTML.
The subject of metadata and vocabularies is being debated.
It was noted that there is a Dublin Core effort specification

http://dublincore.org/documents/dc-html/

for use of Dublin Core in HTML, and there also seems to be
some activity on the Dublin Core mailing list

 https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?S2=DC-GENERAL&q=html5

My ACTION-169 was to send a note to the Dublin Core group.
The content of the note wasn't specified exactly, but I think
it was to invite review of HTML5.

One thing to note that the current HTML5 specification
has removed the "profile" attribute of the "head" element,
which dc-html seems to use. The removal of "profile"
is under discussion in W3C HTML WG as ISSUE-55.
