Re: [dxwg] Dataset series (#868)

@der My opinion is that, if we want to support dataset series in DCAT -- and I agree it is a very common request -- the best approach might be to define a new class (subclass of `dcat:Resource`), e.g. `dcat:DatasetSeries`. The related datasets could then be linked using `dct:hasPart` and `dct:isPartOf`, or similar properties. 
The advantage is that we would not be 'repurposing' existing classes which carries the risk that 'legacy' DCAT implementations might not understand what is going on. A new class would allow to explicitly describe the behaviour of the series and the datasets in it. For example, if the behaviour would include a certain 'inheritance' of 'common metadata' from the series to the individual datasets, that could be made clear in the description of the new class.
