Due to DCAT history, there is an implication that the catalog resources will be somewhat related to data, but in reality ```dcat:Resource``` is a generic resource (its properties can be applicable to any resource) and we indicate in the usage note that "```dcat:Resource``` is an extension point that enables the definition of any kind of catalog. Additional sub-classes may be defined in a DCAT profile or other DCAT application for catalogs of other kinds of resources."

So, I am in favour of generalising and go with Riccardo's definition, giving datasets and data services as examples.
