ISSUE-52 (drop-dc-reference): Drop dc:reference from Dcat [DCAT]

http://www.w3.org/2011/gld/track/issues/52

Raised by: Fadi Maali
On product: DCAT

I suggest dropping dc:reference property from DCAT specification. While publishers can certainly still use it, I think having it in the specification is not necessary. dc:reference is very generic and under specified

With the conformance description stating that properties from DCAT must be used when they are appropriate, dc:reference might be unnecessarily restricting in the sense that it can be used for documentation, related web pages, example document, etc. yet the publisher might prefer to use other properties and still be DCAT-compliant
