@dr-shorthair @arminhaller The problem that I see is that the object of `dcat:contactPoint` is "relevant contact information". An instance of `foaf:Agent` is a person or organisation, not its contact information. Of course the person or organisation may have contact information but it's not obvious how to get to that. This was a recurring issue with DCAT-AP and led to the guideline at https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/release/how-are-publisher-and-contact-point-modelled. Even if the range is widened to include `foaf:Agent`, I think there needs to be a statement somewhere that the instance metadata needs to include the contact information -- and I would suggest it then recommends the use of vCard, so that the data is interoperable.
