Re: [dxwg] further PROV alignment, including for mooted WebService class

1. @nicholascar There is no mooted WebService class - the original (pre-W3C) DCAT has a WebService class which was marked 'deprecated' in DCAT-2014. There is a mooted DataService class in the [current DCAT ED](

2. @azaroth42 I don't understand the problem with sub-classing. Surely that is one of the most common ways to use existing ontologies - i.e. to assert that some concept of interest in a particular application is a subset of one or more classes defined in some more general vocabulary? If we want to use PROV-O capabilities to provide richer descriptions of DCAT things, then we can just say "we consider a dcat:Dataset (etc) to be a kind of prov:Entity, since it has a production history that can be conveniently described using PROV-O ...". Yes, there are risks, but aren't they entirely on the side of the dependent ontology?
