Hi,

re RDFa Core Default Profile and in particular the dcterms prefix used in
the table [1]:

If these prefixes are going to become widely used in the future, would it be
possible to use the 'dc' prefix instead of 'dcterms' for
http://purl.org/dc/terms/? 'dc' is shorter and will look more familiar to
newcomers. This was discussed and advised in the DC-ARCHITECTURE during the
development of RDFa in Drupal 7, see the rationale by Dan Brickley [2] and
the responses from Thomas Baker and Mikael Nilsson [3].

regards,
Steph.
