Hello Aaron,
Regarding your comment about including properties in the table of contents in DCAT Spec document, I'd like to let you know that it is implemented now in the draft
https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/gld/raw-file/default/dcat/index.html

in a slightly different manner though. now properties are listed next to each class in alphabetical order (a form of a sub index)
I hope you find this sufficient

Thanks again for your feedback!

>>> - DCAT is an RDF vocabulary for expressing the contents of data catalogs, such as government data portals.   DCAT is for catalogs of all kinds of data (not just RDF data), but uses RDF to support easy aggregation of catalogs and construction of services which can search across many unrelated catalogs. [1]

>>> - Data Cube is an RDF vocabulary for publishing multidimensional data, particularly statistical data.  It is compatible with the cube model that underlies SDMX (Statistical Data and Metadata eXchange), widely-used ISO standard.  The Data Cube Vocabulary brings essential SDMX elements to RDF, providing a standard way for governments to publish statistical information as Linked Data. [2]
