@jakubklimek I am just wondering why you think it is 'unintended' that an instance of `skos:Concept` used to classify datasets would also be an instance of `rdfs:Class`. 
It's not a case of us saying that all instances of any `skos:Concept` are also instances of `rdfs:Class`, just the ones that are being used with `dct:type`. Could it be solved with a warning at https://w3c.github.io/dxwg/dcat/#Property:resource_type?
As far as I am aware, I don't think there was an explicit intention at DCMI to exclude the use of `skos:Concept` as object for `dct:type`. We could ask the people over there, e.g. @tombaker?
