      Description

      To help avoid collisions of key names in interfaces Metadata implements and allow for more precise definition of DublinCore the keys should be defined as Property objects with the object name and name attribute containing a prefix and the existing String keys deprecated, i.e.

      DublinCore.java
      String SUBJECT = "subject";
      

      would become:

      DublinCore.java
      @Deprecated
      String SUBJECT = "subject";
      
      Property DC_SUBJECT = Property.internalTextBag(PREFIX_DC + PREFIX_DELIMITER + "subject");
      

      Since the use of the simpler key definition is desired eventually, at some point in the future, perhaps 2.0, these prefixed definitions could themselves be deprecated and the move made back to the simpler names.
