hi julian,
i have asked one from the seo team and he says for example the "freshness
factor" is important for google.
is it possible to use the time-tag in the head instead (i mean invisible)?
dc:created is also not in the Meta Extensions List, see:
http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/MetaExtensions


Kind regards
Aykut
