I'm won over by the arguments for offering support for the date, but...

Right. dc:date would seem a good choice, though I reckon foaf:maker
might be a better option than dc:creator as the object is a resource
(a foaf:Agent) rather than a literal. While it's likely to mean an
extra node in many current scenarios, it offers significantly more
prospect for linking data (and less ambiguity).

btw, has anyone had chance to revisit the mappings?
