Lets see, the mission of the MAWG is to "...provide an ontology  
designed to facilitate cross-community data integration..." and it is  
unable to do that itself?

XMP, EUBCore, MediaRDF reused DC. (LOM sort-of did)

Unless you can say where those 11 properties are different to DC, then  
the group has failed its mission.
