I also dont remember, but I think it was because Markus just looked  
for the dublin core concepts that matched the previous concepts we  
had. So probably we haven't even consider it. I really dont mind  
adding it, well I mind because we are feature freeze already, but  
apart of this I dont mind... maybe I tend more for optional than  
mandatory because, again, when something was created can also be  
difficult to figure out. Let say that I update my provider software,  
if the software doesnt take care the creation date will be "recreated".
