For which there is a term dwc:associatedReferences.  Even if this term isn't
exactly the same as dcterms:isReferencedBy, this is getting into a concept
different from the one being requested. If dcterms:isReferencedBy actually
needed for real-world uses by multiple independent parties, then the case
for it's addition should be made in the normal fashion (
http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/namespace/index.htm#classesofchanges, section
3.4), with discussion in a different thread if the discussion has no bearing
on the current topic.
