== vann:usageNote used incorrectly in DCAT RDF representation  ==
The DCAT RDF representation has a lot of documentation captured as text in `vann:usageNote` elements. 
This is incorrect, as it is a sub-property of `rdfs:seeAlso` - see http://vocab.org/vann/#usageNote. 
`rdfs:seeAlso` is an `owl:ObjectProperty` so cannot have a `Literal` value. 

Also, the VANN vocabulary is no longer available in RDF (I can't find it anyway). 

Proposal: replace [vann:usageNote](http://vocab.org/vann/#usageNote) with [skos:scopeNote](https://www.w3.org/TR/skos-primer/#secdocumentation) throughout 

In the RDF representation of SKOS the definition of `scopeNote` is "A note that helps to clarify the meaning and/or the use of a concept."
