It will confuse those who know about the two namespaces. Newcomers will not
know anything about these namespaces. 'dc' is such a common prefix, it would
be a pity to not include it in the default profile, and have to declare it
in the list of prefixes. afaik, all terms from the old namespace map well to
the new one, but Thomas should confirm this.
