late in the discussion, but I would like to shed some light into using
darwin core for taxonomic data exchange, not "occurrences".
Would the following example make sense?
dwc:scientificName=Abies alba Mill.
dwc:basisOfRecord and dwc:recordClass seems redundant. What is the
need to have both?
PreservedSpecimen implies its an occurrence and TaxonName implies a
Taxon class. Isnt this yet another class hierarchy that is flattened
to share different levels of granularity for different clients?

>> dcterms:type = "PhysicalObject"
>> dwc:basisOfRecord = "PreservedSpecimen"
>> dwc:recordClass = "Occurrence"
