OAI DC or SRU DC Schemata to MODS

The Network Development and MARC Standards Office have made available a stylesheet to transform simple Dublin Core (DC) expressed in either OAI DC or SRU DC schemata to MODS (version 3.2).
The transformation may be used in cases where simple Dublin Core records are available, but richer metadata in MODS may be desirable (e.g. by enhancing the records). For instance, there have been some METS profiles that have been developed that require MODS descriptive metadata.

There may be a need to develop a companion stylesheet that transforms qualified DC (or some version of qualified DC, e.g. DSpace's). We would be interested in any feedback on this.
