Thanks Ivan,

Looking at the documentation, it's clear that the /terms/ namespace is 
the preferred option with the older ones retained as a legacy. It's a 
trivial change to update the dcterms namespace in our document so unless 
a WG member has reason to say otherwise, we'll make that change in the 
next drafts.
