Good dcat news: The data.gov.uk team has rolled out some dcat support  
in the latest update to their RDFa markup [1].

An example extraction is here: [2]

It uses only a few of the dcat terms at this time, doesn't declare the  
dcat:Dataset and dcat:Distribution classes, and uses the old  
vocab.deri.ie namespace rather than the new w3.org one [3], but it's a  
great start and we now have some 3000 UK datasets marked up with dcat!

Best,
Richard
