This use of URI references without fragment IDs can lead to a
confusion between documents and resources.  It is not a big issue for me,
but it may be for others.  (Who, apparently, have not complained.)

When I type http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/title in to my browser, the
URI that comes back is http://dublincore.org/2003/03/24/dces#title, which I
think is much in keeping with the RDF philosophy on such URIs.
