Element refiners versus qualifiers in DC

Thanks for your help Baden!
Seems pretty simple-I found this in the schema for substituting in the
 <<< <xs:documentation xml:lang="en">DCterms XML Schema XML Schema for
http://purl.org/dc/terms/ namespace Created 2003-04-02 Created by Tim
Cole (t-cole3 at uiuc.edu) Tom Habing (thabing at uiuc.edu) Jane Hunter
(jane at dstc.edu.au) Pete Johnston (p.johnston at ukoln.ac.uk), Carl Lagoze
(lagoze at cs.cornell.edu) This schema declares XML elements for the DC
elements and DC element refinements from the http://purl.org/dc/terms/
namespace. It reuses the complexType dc:SimpleLiteral, imported from the
dc.xsd schema, which permits simple element content, and makes the
xml:lang attribute available. This complexType permits the derivation of
other complexTypes which would permit child elements. DC elements are
declared as substitutable for the abstract element dc:any, and DC
element refinements are defined as substitutable for the base elements
which they refine. This means that the default type for all XML elements
(i.e. all DC elements and element refinements) is dc:SimpleLiteral.
Encoding schemes are defined as complexTypes which are restrictions of
the dc:SimpleLiteral complexType. These complexTypes restrict values to
an appropriates syntax or format using data typing, regular expressions,
or enumerated lists. In order to specify one of these encodings an
xsi:type attribute must be used in the instance document. Also, note
that one shortcoming of this approach is that any type can be applied to
any of the elements or refinements. There is no convenient way to
restrict types to specific elements using this
approach.</xs:documentation> >>>
