and just for contrast, I put bibliographic information in dc:type and use

I can see where bibliographic info could go in dc:identifier. But I hate
to have both free text & URIs in dc:identifier, and dc:type looks pretty
good. And you make an argument that the bibliographic info tells you a
good bit about resource type.
