This document describes an encoding for the DCMES in XML subject to these restrictions:

* The Dublin Core elements described in the DCMES V1.1 reference can be used
* No other elements can be used
* No element qualifiers can be used
* The resulting RDF/XML cannot be embedded in web pages

http://dublincore.org/documents/usageguide/

The Dublin Core standard includes two levels: Simple and
Qualified. Simple Dublin Core comprises fifteen elements;
Qualified Dublin Core includes three additional elements
(Audience, Provenance and RightsHolder), as well as a group
of element refinements (also called qualifiers) that refine
the semantics of the elements in ways that may be useful in
resource discovery.

Simple Dublin Core

The fifteen Dublin Core elements used without qualifiers,
that is without element refinement or encoding
schemes. Sometimes referred to as Dublin Core simple.

http://dublincore.org/resources/faq/

"Simple Dublin Core" is Dublin Core metadata that
uses no qualifiers; only the main 15 elements of the
Dublin Core Metadata Element Set are expressed as simple
attribute-value pairs without any "qualifiers" (such as
encoding schemes, enumerated lists of values, or other
processing clues) to provide more detailed information
about a resource.

from the <a href="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/">http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/</a> namespace, with no use of
encoding schemes or element refinements.
