My only concern with it is that ITS 2.0 is actually much more complex than Dublin Core. But that is really a quibble. In terms of a way to indicate to the public what ITS 2.0 is intended to do, I think it is a good metaphor for those who know Dublin Core. If you really wanted to get an expert opinion on the metaphor, you could ask Sue-Ellen Wright, but I think for your purpose the formulation is good. I may borrow it in some form like "just as Dublin Core has revolutionized the field of resource description and discovery, ITS 2.0 has the potential to have far-reaching aspects on preparing data and making it accessible for various usages across language boundaries."
