metadata in OWL 1.1 --> can I do that?

How are you?

I am Soonho Kim who is working on Food and Agricultural Organization of the
United Nation.
Now, I saw the OWL 1.1 provide a metadata facility. In my understanding, the
metadata is about describing classes and properties on ontology such as 'who
makes classes/properties', when or why?'. 

I am not sure (or doubt) that the metadata facility in OWL1.1. could provide
a facility to reuse the current existing metadata such as Dublin Core.  

Now, I am creating  an ontology which covers  existing metadata such as
Dublin Core(DC) element, DC terms and others, since this ontology would be
used for cataloguing publications in FAO. 

My bottom line is to 1) reuse the current RDF version of Dublin Core
(keeping the name space) without doing any further refinement, 2) to keep
OWL DL not OWL FULL, and 3) to use the Dublin Core for inference(that's why
I don't want to use Protégé Dublin Core ontology in OWL DL, which adapts the
annotation property providing no inference) 

Can I do the three things using the metadata facility in OWL 1.1?

Thanks for your answer  in advance: )
