IMHO the definition of "concise bounded description" is quite clear and
schemas/ontologies are no special case. The concise bounded description
of the term above would be

<rdf:Description rdf:about="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">
<dc:title xml:lang="en-US">The Dublin Core Element Set v1.1 namespace
providing access to its content by means of an RDF Schema</dc:title>
<dc:publisher xml:lang="en-US">The Dublin Core Metadata
Initiative</dc:publisher>
<dc:description xml:lang="en-US">The Dublin Core Element Set v1.1
namespace provides URIs for the Dublin Core Elements v1.1. Entries are
declared using RDF Schema language to support RDF
applications.</dc:description>
<dc:language xml:lang="en-US">English</dc:language>
<dcterms:issued>1999-07-02</dcterms:issued>
<dcterms:modified>2003-03-24</dcterms:modified>
<dc:source rdf:resource="http://dublincore.org/documents/dces/"/>
<dc:source rdf:resource="http://dublincore.org/usage/decisions/"/>
<dcterms:isReferencedBy
rdf:resource="http://www.dublincore.org/documents/2001/10/26/dcmi-namespace/"/>
<dcterms:isRequiredBy rdf:resource="http://purl.org/dc/terms/"/>
<dcterms:isReferencedBy rdf:resource="http://purl.org/dc/dcmitype/"/>
</rdf:Description>

as far as I can see.

Cheers,
