[RFC2731] defines "Encoding Dublin Core Metadata in HTML". Newer specifications published by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI)↓, in particular "Expressing Dublin Core metadata using HTML/XHTML meta and link elements" (DC-HTML, <http://dublincore.org/documents/dc-html/>), have obsoleted this work.
Note: Implementers of RFC 2731 should note that DC-HTML introduces a new requirement with respect to the use of the "head" element's "profile" attribute.
|I historic (type: change, status: open)|
|firstname.lastname@example.org||2009-10-08||It's not clear whether this case is really a candidate for reclassification as "historic". After all, the format that was described in RFC 2731 is still in use in Dublin Core's DC-HTML; it just got revised. So simply stating that it is obsolete (which would be implied by publishing this document) should be enough.|
This document recommends that the IESG reclassify [RFC2731] as Historic.
