I see what you mean about calling this a requirement. It does depend on the project and its point of view!

I think DESCRIBE is probably in these -- which could certainly be renamed or reworded!
REUSE-SCHEMAS: reuse existing RDF schemas {FOAF, ORE, ...} that represent metadata element sets in publishing the data as RDF
REUSE-VALUE-VOCABS: reuse existing vocabularies already published as LOD {LCSH, GTAA, ...} in publishing the data as RDF, i.e. replacing internal identifiers with URIs from these vocabularies.

Yes, I think that this is 
MAP: create equivalence relationships (owl:sameAs, skos:closeMatch) between value vocabularies or data items.

Again, we could certainly reword!
