Hi Felix, Hi all,

I think this is a good way of letting others, outside of the immediate 
mlw world get a grip on ITS 2.0.
Of course, as whenever you try to explain one concept with another, 
there will be some whom you lose, because the "other concept" is 
meaningless to them.
Since Dublin Core is certainly far more widely known (and even 
understood) than ITS probably currently is, your statement will 
certainly be a winner.
You won't get everyone, but you'll get a lot more people, librarians, 
information managers and manipulators, terminologists, to name just a few.

My 2 Eurocents worth would be to say: go with it, run with it !
