These are certainly useful, but they do not provide direct access to the dataset semantics. You would have to look inside another artefact (the schema), which you may or may not be able to process. 

My goal here is to _enable_ some fine-grained semantics to be directly visible in the discovery metadata, particularly things like variables and target features. The predicate mentioned above might be seen as merely specializations of dcat:theme, but these labels are already standardized in vocabularies from W3C (and elsewhere) so could be adopted straight away. This level of detail wouldn't suit everyone, but can be done in a common way for those who want it.
