If you can't add annotations for your context that greatly limits the concept of application profiles. If dct:title is "The name given to the resource" and if your context is that the resource is a dataset, then you will want to convey to users of your metadata specifically that this is the name given to the dataset, as "resource" may not express that well. DCMI Terms give this information in an rdfs:comment, and the wording is consciously broad to allow reuse. 

Also, I have often thought that the RDF language-tagged strings do not cover all of the common use cases, in that one not only has a desire to give the user the language of their choice but in many instances there is additional context that could be used to select display forms. In the educational arena, terminology changes based on the presumed reading level of the audience, and you may not want to address early readers with the same concept names as university students. Having a "context" tag would help, although how it would function within RDF is something yet to be worked out.
