I had contacts with Thomas Baker, from DCMI (cc-d) on the default prefixes in general and, also based on some comments he gave us on earlier drafts of the RDFa document, I got the impression that DCMI would prefer the dcterms prefix. Personally, I do not have a strong preference, and I am happy to defer to Tom on that matter...

'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].
