Thanks, Eric! I had forgotten the actual content of the document, and
that it included properties for profiles. I'm adding it to the DXWG
page. Did you produce an RDF ontology as well?
Let me say that I really like the use of mandatory / repeatable as
yes/no elements. The RDF validation languages  require the use of
minimum / maximum that are expressed as integers, and therefore optional
is expressed as minimum=0. This makes sense from a programming point of
view, but I don't think it's very human friendly. In some work I'm doing
with the Dublin Core community (not yet ready to show), I'm going to
push for the mandatory / repeatable version.
