I would like a clarification of the usage note at


It seems to me that DCAT, as a base specification, should keep away from
declaring properties mandatory as such recommendations would depend on
the requirements of a particular application. 


Moreover, according to the SKOS specification "there are no conditions
preventing a SKOS concept from taking part in zero, one, or more than
one concept scheme" (http://www.w3.org/TR/skos-reference/#L1101) so I
would think that DCAT can't require that skos:inScheme or
skos:topConceptOf is mandatory on every skos:Concept.
