Quoting from your link: "Creators should be listed separately,
preferably in the same order that they appear in the publication."
Listing more than one creator in a Creator element violates the
standard. You are right that 'Creators' isn't a Dublin Core element, but
the proposed method represents an ordered list of 'Creator' elements.
This is the same pattern as used by Contributors().
Subject() is also a sequence, but in this case the sequence is the element.
So I don't think it makes sense to have a method with the name of a
Dublin Core element if we allow more than one instance of this element.
