This is what I was thinking of when I said ripping DC and DCQ from
uncontrolled blobs of data would result in a jumble. I've been working with
the METS schema lately, and can't imagine the DC elements being useful when
yanked from their structural context. As you suggested, though, I could feel
fairly confident if I limited the extraction to DC/DCQ elements that occur
at the top-most level.
