Hope this helps,

Cool, that's great. Is there anything else that's currently possible, but not listed?

From your comment, I went and looked again at the DCTERMS list.

In my original list of custom metadata terms there were the following that didn't map to the DC list:

Code:
<meta name="FileName" content="FILENAME.EXT" />
<meta name="FileVersion" content="VERSION NUMBER/NAME" />
<meta name="FileScanner" content="NAME" />
<meta name="FileComment" content="COMMENT" />
<meta name="SubTitle" content="SUBTITLE" />
<meta name="Series" content="SERIES NAME" />
<meta name="SeriesNumber" content="SERIES SEQUENCE NUMBER" />
<meta name="PublicationCity" content="CITY NAME" />
<meta name="CopyrightHolder" content="NAME" />
And this one didn't map to the ePub spec:
Code:
<meta name="DC.date.copyrighted" content="YYYY(-MM(-DD))" />

What do you think of the following?

Code:
<meta name="DCTERMS.alternative" content="SUBTITLE" />
<meta name="DCTERMS.isPartOf" content="SERIES NAME" />
<meta name="DCTERMS.rightsHolder" content="NAME" />
<meta name="DCTERMS.dateCopyrighted" content="YYYY(-MM(-DD))" />
And maybe changing
Code:
<meta name="DC.rights" content="LICENSE" />
to
Code:
<meta name="DCTERMS.license" content="LICENSE" />
?

Still leaves me out in the cold with the following though:
Code:
<meta name="FileName" content="FILENAME.EXT" />
<meta name="FileVersion" content="VERSION NUMBER/NAME" />
<meta name="FileScanner" content="NAME" />
<meta name="FileComment" content="COMMENT" />
<meta name="SeriesNumber" content="SERIES SEQUENCE NUMBER" />
<meta name="PublicationCity" content="CITY NAME" />
