Shigeo Sugimoto, his colleagues, and I just finished a short paper
discussing some versioning requirements and alternative ways to version
the Dublin Core. We also come down in favor of version-independent
namespace and element names.  At the same time, we suggest some
mechanisms for helping developers or archivists specify or reconstruct
the exact state of namespaces and definitions as of a particular date.

We "very soon now" wanted to turn this paper into a strawman for
discussion on the mailing list of the DCMI Registry Working Group
(http://www.mailbase.ac.uk/lists/dc-registry/join.html) and welcome
anyone from this list to join.  I would be happy to share this paper
with anyone in the meantime.
