New Mission Statement for Dublin Core

The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative now has a new mission statement. From the web site:
Originally, the main focus of attention of DCMI was the development of standards based on the initial vision of providing a basic approach to discovery of Web resources. In recent years, the attention has turned towards meeting the practical needs of organizations developing and deploying metadata solutions to provide services and products to their clients and customers.
The organization is moving from a focus on resource discovery to resource description. [from ResourceShelf]
