Re: [dxwg] Use PROV-O to satisfy provenance requirements

The DCAT team has resolved to adopt elements from the PROV-O vocabulary for use in the context of individual of type dcat:Dataset (at least). There is no need to formally axiomatize 
```
dcat:Resource rdfs:subClassOf prov:Entity . 
```
because the PROV properties `prov:wasGeneratedBy`, `prov:wasDerivedFrom` and `prov:wasAttributedTo` have a global domain constraint that entails that anyway. So if you tag a dataset using one of these properties you imply that is it a `prov:Entity`, and if you don't, then that entailment does not follow. 

Anyway, since we have agreed to use PROV-O properties, I think this issue is now resolved.
