Shepherd: Andy Powell

Changes to DCMI property definitions and comments have been
proposed [1]. In addition, a change to the comment for
dc:date has been discussed by the DCMI Date Working Group
[3] -- see related Madrid topic, "Issues related to dc:date".

In Madrid, we should carefully review these changes and
"approve" them in a provisional sense. After folding this set
of changes together with the proposed changes to the DCMI Type
Vocabulary, all of the changes would be posted to DC-GENERAL
for a comment period before a final vote for approval is held.
