[OAI-implementers] Sets and stuff, OAI 2.0

I would add to Xiaoming's list "identifier", both as a URL from which the
resource can be obtained, and, if the resource is a published article, the
location of the published version.
I would strongly suggest using the "Family-name, Forenames" format for
creator and "yyyy-mm-dd" style dates (rather than "september 2000").
(n.b. "abstract" should go into DC "description")
