Hi Simon,

Thanks for your comments. regarding the DCAT part:

dcat:Dataset can't be a subclass of void:Dataset because it is a more
general concept. 
void:Dataset represents an RDF dataset while dcat:Dataset captures any
Consideration of other possible mappings (e.g. to dcat:Distribution) are
also possible 
see [7] for an initial discussion. Mapping the two vocabularies is
definitely worth 
thinking of however I believe deferring the decsion until dcat is used
more in the 
wild and usecases become clearer is better for now.
