Re: [dxwg] Incorrect type for *URL properties - should be owl:DatatypeProperty with range xsd:anyURI

I agree that the labels for the properties dcat:*URL and their descriptions would imply that their range should be ```xsd:anyURI``` making them ```owl:DatatypeProperty``` instead of ```owl:ObjectProperty```.

However, I agree with @andrea-perego that we shouldn't break current implementations. We could move outside of OWL DL and support properties with the two types, but I don't think we should do that and add more complexity. 

If the problem is the usage note, I suggest we change it to make clear that we expect the value to be an individual. 

To find examples, I've been exploring the [European Data Portal SPARQL endpoint](https://www.europeandataportal.eu/sparql-manager/en/). As @dr-shorthair mentioned, the current use is e.g. : 
```<http://europeandataportal.eu/set/distribution/dfdb9314-3695-45b5-b6e3-982c38a3f7aa> dcat:downloadURL <https://www.milieuinfo.be/dms/d/d/workspace/SpacesStore/480e10df-9020-41ce-ac38-c41bd98b5851/22.2.1%20Oostakker%20Slotendries.zip> ; ``` 

I could not find examples of 'cross-linking of related resources (as services and distributions)' (especially because the endpoint actually hangs with more complex queries). @andrea-perego maybe you can point us to examples of that?
