I have amended the paragraph to read:
Moreover, Dublin Core elements are used to describe
things other than document-like resources -- things such
as physical objects and abstract concepts. For example,
a Creator may be one who "makes" a stuffed animal, but
to say that a Creator makes the "content of" a stuff
animal is confusing. In light of current usage, the
meaning of the original distinction between a resource
and its content is no longer clear.
