Yeah - you have a point. And dotty version signifiers are very prone to (mis-)interpretation as well. 
There are precedents several directions. 

HTML is at v5 - I think this was due to the progressive addition of features.
OWL went to v2 - I think this was because of incompatible changes. 
XML, XML Namespaces, XSD and almost all the RDF recs are just at v1.1 - I think this was mostly clarifications and tweaks rather significant change in scope or extra features, but there may have been a bit of the latter. 

I guess if we extend the scope of DCAT then that means there is an incompatibility between new DCAT instances and the old DCAT schema. So if that is the criterion, then v2 is required.
