== 'smushing' ==
Respond to comment from @smrgeoinfo - https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-dxwg-comments/2018Nov/0007.html

The text was copied from DCAT-2014. 

The point is that the `foaf:homepage` is the _canonical_ webpage for a Catalog. This is implied by the fact that `foaf:homepage` [is defined (in FOAF)](http://xmlns.com/foaf/spec/#term_homepage) as an **inverse-functional-property**. The 'smushing' text is just a commentary or interpretation of the implication of IFP in the DCAT context, as there might be more than one web-page for a `dcat:Catalog` (or any other `dcat:Resource` for that matter). 

I propose adjusting the usage note to the following: 

> foaf:homepage is an inverse functional property (IFP) which means that it SHOULD be unique and precisely identify the web-page for the catalog. This is expected to be helpful in cases where there is more than one webpage about the catalog.
