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.
