Ok, I did a little pinging, results so far:

Eric Miller:
OAIster is a front-end to OAI [1] data. OAI uses Dublin Core [2][3].

OAI is a clear use case for GRDDL, but this is another story :)

Leigh Dodds:
Except that Tantek is missing something thats written on the OAIster
homepage: its built upon the OAI Metadata Harvesting Protocol


The specification mandates that *every* OAI-MHP compliant repository
*must* export metadata as simple (unqualified) Dublin Core. They can
have other formats, but they must support DC as a minimum.

So creator is, in fact, dc:creator.

The OAI Repository Explorer is probably a better starting point if you
want to see actual XML and Dublin Core:
