Hi again,

As far as I understood Johannes' concerns (please correct me if I'm wrong), the problem is he think they were intended to be used just as dc:type (Resource Type) allowable values. So it should be used always as in the following example:

<earl:Software rdf:about="#tool">
  <dc:title xml:lang="en">Cool Tool</dc:title>
  <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#gDate">2005-06-25</dc:date> 
  **<dc:type rdf:resource="http://purl.org/dc/dcmitype/Software"/>**

So, IMO the question is: could be the use of a term from the DC Type Vocabulary for something different from dc:type considered as a "bad practice"?

I suppose so, isn't it?
