DUV: Question on the use of biro:isReferencedBy

Dear DWBP WG,

I have a question about the use of property biro:isReferencedBy (and its 
inverse biro:references) in DUV.

The definition given in DUV [1] (as in BiRO [2]) reads as follows:

[[
The relation between a publication and the bibliographic record or 
bibliographic reference describing it.
]]

My understanding is that biro:isReferencedBy (biro:references) can be 
used to link a dataset / distribution to its bib reference. However, 
elsewhere in the DUV specification, this property is used to link a 
dataset / distribution to a resource (e.g., a publication) citing it.

In case I got it right, this use case doesn't seem to be fit for 
biro:isReferencedBy, but rather is in line with the definition of 
dct:isReferencedBy [3].

Thanks in advance, and sorry for raising this issue only in this late stage.

Andrea
