Close enough, as creator can just as easily designate a company as an
individual, at least in DC. dc:creator="Microsoft" and DC:creator="Fred
Smith" are equally valid (though author="Microsoft" would look funny).
I've never really liked that myself, preferring author="Unattributed"
publisher="Microsoft" and mapping to dc:creator=author and
dc:publisher=publisher. But that runs counter to common usage (and
forces companies to be clear about the fact that they're subsuming
individual identity under corporate identity).
I like the idea of <a href=[URL of video] title=[title of video]
rel="enclosure"> except that, because there's so much more metadata
that could be associated with a video (size, runtime, director, stars,
other credits, etc) that we should be explicit about supporting an
(optional?) link pointing to more detailed information and/or metadata.
