I'm at DrupalCon Paris, discussing some very current work on getting
RDF into the core of Drupal 7.
One open question is this business of the new and classic DC namespace URIs.
Since Drupal content is quite nicely managed, expressing it in terms
of the new "terms" namespace makes a lot of sense.
However xmlns:dc as a prefix looks a lot nicer and more familiar than
(most Drupal people aren't familiar with any DC or RDF/RDFa stuff, so
there isn't much of cultural legacy issue here with using an "unusual"
While it might be confusing for some to see xmlns:dc bound to the
newer terms namespace URI, I think on balance it might be the right
thing to do.
Thoughts, opinions, feedback? I know this has been discussed before
(hey, everything in DC has :) ... but I would like to come up with a
concrete recommendation from DC to the Drupal coders, so that we have
a chance of getting sensible defaults into the Drupal 7 core...
ps. see http//drupal.org/project/usage/drupal to get a sense of the
scale here - they're seeing nearly 200,000 registered installations...
