BP Doc, Example in Provide structural metadata

I'm with the SDW WG at the moment and this gave me reason to take a look 
at how and where DWBP currently refers to anything to do with location. 
This led me to Provide structural metadata [1]. The JSON in the example 

   "name": "stop_lat",
   "titles": ["Latitude"],
   "dc:description": "The latitude of the bus stop.",
   "datatype": "number"

dc:description?? Really? It's a value, not a description, surely?

And then there's

   "name": "zone_id",
   "titles": ["ZONE"],
   "dc:description": "An identifier for the zone where the bus stop is 
   "datatype": "string"

Which again seems an odd use of dc:description (consider dcterms:identifier)

What's the origin of the schema used?
