The stand-alone Web page for the DCMI Type Vocabulary [1] redundantly
replicates the IRIs and term definitions from DCMI Metadata Terms [2].  

This stand-alone document is a legacy from the early years of DCMI, but we see
no reason why we could now not simply discontinue the document and edit the
Apache redirect to point to the latest DCMI Metadata Terms.  

Am I correct in assuming that generating this extra document in parallel simply
increases the potential for error, and that simply deleting the script used to
generate it [1] would simplify the current task of adapting the scripts -- and
future maintenance of the scripts?
