I am a little nervous about these 'coathanger' classes, `dcat:Resource` and `dcat:Representation`. These are things that people aren't supposed to use, right? They are just for convenience in the specification, so that we don't have to repeat properties that are common for the subclasses. However, it would be perfectly valid -- although we could include notes to discourage such use -- for an implementation to describe everything in the catalogue as `dcat:Resource` with `dcat:Representation`. Aren't we not 'dumbing down' DCAT this way?
