This seems to me to be a conflict between:

1. the desire to use the latest and greatest version of Dublin Core; and
2. the desire to use a literal object so that the example includes both
a literal and a URI.

Perhaps something like dcterms:modified could be used in the example
instead of dcterms:creator, as that has a literal object?
