Ron,
Tod Matola, Eric Miller and I created an XSLT stylesheet (part of the EOR
project) that translates RDF into XHTML and maintains a specific order for
DC elements.  Let me know if this would be of any interest or value to you.

Wait a sec... Are you explicitly adding something to PRISM that will make it
incompatible will the rest of the RDF world? I may not understand the
comment, and apologize if this is the case, but if I read it correctly,
PRISM files using this special addition will be essentially unusable with a
generic RDF processor. This would be a Bad Thing.
