Hi Markus,

I never used the "old" DarwinCore concepts with TapirLink, except for 
testing the import of DiGIR PHP configuration. I also don't know if 
somebody is using it.

Anyway, since someone already had the work of adding all DarwinCore 
concepts in the CNS file, I would suggest to keep them there. At 
least while the new Darwin is still under the standardization 
process. But we should definitely rename the label and maybe add some 
comments there - the old DarwinCore is being shown with a greater 
version than the new one...
