@jakubklimek Is there a use case that says we want to classify datasets with `skos:Concept`? Such a use case is not in https://w3c.github.io/dxwg/ucr/.  
In the current draft of the new specification at https://w3c.github.io/dxwg/dcat/#Property:resource_type, there is no mention of `skos:Concept` as range of `dct:type`. It states correctly that the range of `dct:type` is `rdfs:Class`. So far, so good.
Maybe the problem is that there is mention of MARC intellectual resource types which are indeed expliclitly defined as `skos:Concept`. Could the solution be to remove that example?
Of the other four examples, the terms of the DCMI Type vocabulary are defined as `rdf:Class`. I don't know whether the other three (ISO19115, DataCite, re3data) have been published as RDF at all. The links link to text or XML enumeration.
