A note about DC.xxx properties.
According to the spec, the properties marked in my mail can be used as
DC-prefixed, though in the wild the DCTERMS prefix is largely preferred. If
these properties were to be used, it should be specified that the correct
namespace declaration is *not* <link rel="schema.dc" href="
http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">, but something like <link
rel="schema.dc" href="http://purl.org/dc/terms/">. DC prefix is used with
both namespaces for legacy compatibility, but the prevalence of DCTERMS
over DC is about 100 to 1.
All this does not apply to dc.date.issued, which simply does not exist (the
correct property name is dc.issued).
You can find all sources for those properties at

Cheers,
