Hi Diane,

While it is true that DCMI no longer supports DCMI Box and DCMI Point in their
original form [1,2], these specifications were revised in 2006 in a way that
brought them into conformance with the notion of an RDF datatype [3,4].  The
DCMI metadata terms:

    http://purl.org/dc/terms/Box [5]
    http://purl.org/dc/terms/Point [6]

are Datatypes.  The terms Box and Point, as well as the specifications DCMI Box
and DCMI Point, are all still DCMI Recommendations.  Though DCMI no longer
actively promotes their use, they _are_ still supported...
