[uf-discuss] Dublin Core as a microformat (was: Re: xfn and biographies)

I wonder if this use case is already solved by eRDF, since that  
provides mechanisms for linking to the Dublin Core namespaces and  
then specifying the properties in HTML class attributes.

In eRDF, that becomes:

<span class="DC-publisher">Acme Inc.</span>


<span class="DC-publisher fn org">Acme Inc.</span>


The only practical difference I see, were we to approach this in the  
microformats process, is that we'd find a different solution to  
including links to RDF schema in the HEAD of a document (in eRDF,  
using <link rel="schema">).

Is that the only problem we'd be trying to solve in making a Dublin  
Core microformat?
