That's encouraging - what hints were you referring to? Anything in
public we can echo here?

I'm afraid I'm only slightly familiar with how DC elements are being
used. It seems like they're only being used (in HTML) now to describe
whole pages, not parts of pages.
I just read the DCQ page  about using DC terms in meta and link
elements in the HTML head element - that's where I'm getting this
Are you suggesting a new design pattern for using dublin core elements
and qualifiers in all microformats? Or a specific microformat to cover
some particular cases when you'd use DC?
