dr-shorthair has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/dxwg:

== Incorrect type for *URL properties - should be owl:DatatypeProperty with range xsd:anyURI ==
The properties `dcat:accessURL` and `dcat:downloadURL` are currently specified as `owl:ObjectProperty` even though the description makes it clear that only a URI value is expected. The correct way to handle that is for them to be `owl:DatatypeProperty` with range `xsd:anyURI`. 

Leaving them as  `owl:ObjectProperty` means that an embedded/blank node is allowed, which is not the intention. 

This pattern should also be used for the new property proposed for data services `dcat:endpointURL` (or `dcat:endpointLocation`.
