It would have to apply to any kind of media.

By the way, I have bee discussing Dublin Core (‘DC’) with the developers of 
the Atom 1.0 specification. It seams the reason they created atom:rights 
instead of using dc:rights were just about what I thought it was: They 
though DC was too loosely defined. Their own atom:rights element were 
designed to more clearly define what the element contained (escaped HTML, 
clear text, or whatever else).

When it comes to other dc:elements the arguments were about the same: Could 
be more clearly defined what they contain and remove redundant attributes 
and children elements.
