This example was specifically intended to illustrate MARC to simple Dublin
Core. If illustrating qualified DC, then, yes, it would result in a richer
record.

We are working on revisions to the DC/MARC crosswalks which could provide
a basis for an XSLT that converts more metadata if qualified DC is used.
