As well as what Ed points out, I had brought up the dcat:granularity in
IRC a number
of weeks ago with Richard. Since we (well, DC) distinguish between
spatial and temporal
extents, it seems to me that we should distinguish between spatial and
temporal
granularity.

Propose the following recommended pairs:

    (dct:extent, dcat:granularity)
    (dct:spatial, dcat:spatialGranularity)
    (dct:temporal, dcat:temporalGranularity)
