Thanks, Antoine! I had forgotten about those comments, but I think that this really addresses " what's different when talking about vocabularies and datasets in the Semantic Web context, compared to earlier treatments of metadata schemes"

Examples:
a record from a dataset for a given book could have a Subject element drawn from Dublin Core, and a value for Subject drawn from LCSH.
the same dataset may contain records for authors as first-class entities that are linked from their book, described with elements like "name" from FOAF.
a dataset may be self describing in that it contains information about itself as a distinct entity for example with a modified date and maintainer/curator elements drawn from Dublin Core.
