Identifier: http://dublincore.org/usage/meetings/2005/09/madrid/dcsv/

DCMI has had a specification for Dublin Core Structured Values
(DCSV), "syntax for writing a list of labelled values in a
text string" and three recommendations for specific DCSVs --
DCMI Box, DCMI Period, and DCMI Point. The documents were
announced for public comment on 2005-07-25 with a deadline
of 22 August.

The main changes are: 
-- some examples have been removed 
-- XML encodings given in the text have been removed 
-- wordings have been modified to ensure that the documents
   conform to the DCMI Abstract Model (notably, the terms
   'label' and 'value', used to describe the parts of the
   components of structured values, were replaced with new terms
   'componentLabel' and 'componentValue' respectively)
-- other minor changes of wording and layout have been applied. 

Please review the following, comparing the old and new versions
