I'm not sure if I'm right for all the dates in the OAI. would you like to give 
me some help:

1. the earliestDatestamp in Identify response. is this refer to the resource 
creation or modification time?

2. the Date in metadata, DC. is this refer to resource creation or 
modification time too?

3. the datestamp in the header of DC. I think this one should refer to the 
creation or modification of the item in the repository, is that right?

Thank you very much for your help!
