On a more general point, a couple of times people have suggested to me 
that the D of DCAT is sometimes unhelpful; that is, one might think in 
terms of a catalogue vocabulary, where the items in the catalogue 
*might* be datasets, yes, or, perhaps things like equipment (think 
projectors and smart boards in university campus).

The current definition of a dataset is (deliberately) so broad that it's 
close to the definition of the more general notion of an 'Information 
Resource'
