dcterms has publisher and date, but unfortunately lacks date of
publication. It may be possible to find this in BIBO or some other
bibliographic schema. However, I have seen others place an entire
publication statement in dcterms:publisher for this exact reason. It's a
real lack in DC.

There is no requirement for the author's name to be in natural order. In
fact, the bibjson.org page shows examples with both.

Again, DC doesn't provide a place for the "statement of responsibility"
that is in much library data. So the choice is to lose that, or to stuff
it in title. It also doesn't have a separate subtitle element, so that
too has to be stuff in title.

A translator is generally dcterms:contributor. dcterms doesn't have an
author just dcterms:creator.
Fitting data into DC can be a real pain - either that or you have to
accept that you will lose a lot, and loss is never a good idea. DC has
lots of gaps. some of these may have been filled in in BIBJSON but I
still can't find the BIBJSON ontology online -- anyone?
