On the whole, it seems perfectly acceptable.  In some cases, it works
in parallel to existing Microformats... but that fine.  (And was even
expected.)  You can use both at the same time.

On a separate note.... This wouldn't be a Microformat-type suggestion
(since it's in the head)....  But to get rid of the duplicate of
<title> and <meta name="DC.title">, maybe something like this could be

<title class="DC.title">The Title of This Thing!</title>

Well... when it's appropriate to do so anyways.  (When what's
contained in the <title> is actually the title, and not search engine
SPAM... or something like that.)  Although, the author would need
access to the <title> to do that of course.

See ya
