  These are not likely to be used or useful. I rather have
  Google index my web pages that render the full metadata
  for humans. BTW, Google have taken the business
  of resource discovery for them. We better get used to it.

  dc:identifier is the identitfier of the item, not of the 
  full text, is in not? Say I have an academic paper,
  dc:identifier should be the id of the paper, not the 
  url of the full-text?
