Dubmin Core still exists and people - tons of people, actually - are still working on it, with applications that range across all domains, from traditional Chinese music to education. This paper traces the development of educational medtata standards, where "a development where DCMI specifications have been adopted into an ISO/IEC standard. The new standard is to be used to develop other standards. This development has led in turn, for example, to the adoption of the ISO/IEC version as a normative standard for European education." There's some good history in this paper and presentation, taking us back through the EdNA and LOM days to current metadata implementations. Many more papers and presentations are available from the recent DMCI Lisbon conference proceedings.
