I believe they have a good coverage for the statistics features of a 
dataset, but probably not others, like what VoID covers. But VoID is for 
RDF dataset.

Miao,

Note that the latest documentation on VoID should be at: 
http://www.w3.org/TR/void/. And have you taken a look at dcat: 
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/gld/raw-file/default/dcat/index.html? I believe 
this is not the same as your "Dataset Catalog Vocabulary".

Cheers,

Jun
