@kcoyle , @agbeltran , @nicholascar ,
I think that this can be indeed done without defining a proper profile, if we limit ourselves to the mandatory elements of DataCite. What is missing in DCAT, as mentioned by @agbeltran , is `dct:creator`. However, also in this case, we should theoretically specify cardinality constraints (in the closed-world sense), which are not supposed to be included in DCAT - i.e., we need a profile for this.

An option is to adopt a more general approach, and relate it to a use case of "data citation". For instance, we can say that, if you want to publish records enabling data citation, you should include these information. We can also mention DataCite, but, after all, the information needed for data citation has not been invented by DataCite: it is the basic information that has been traditionally used for bibliographic references.

Maybe, this use scenario can be added just as one of the example at the beginning of the DCAT spec.
