I'm not familiar with METS, but, yes, this sounds right.

(Much more right than, for example, Theo's back-from-the-grave
won't-lie-down-and-die-a-decent-death zombie plan to call everything
Dublin Core whether or not it actually is DC.  And, sorry Theo, that's
all the reply you're going to get from me for your new attempt to put
this one across us.)
