http://dublincore.org/documents/dces/ says that
http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/ is legacy and
http://purl.org/dc/terms/ is a superset. For the sanity of web
developers henceforth one should do everything possible to discourage
use of the legacy, including using
xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/terms/".  prefix.cc and the first URI in
this paragraph should be updated as well. IMO.
