Karen - science-on-schema.org is based on schema.org. 
And in turn, the dataset/catalog parts of schema.org were based on DCAT 0.9. 
So this is no coincidence - see 

https://schema.org/distribution etc. 

The close relationship with schema.org was already mentioned and a partial mapping provided in the DCAT-rev draft 

Or perhaps I am missing your point? 

FWIW I tried mapping one of the examples that we've recently been working on into schema.org -
Compare https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/blob/dcat-issue317-simon/dcat/examples/csiro-stratchart.schema.ttl 
with https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/blob/dcat-issue317-simon/dcat/examples/csiro-stratchart.ttl 
It is almost complete, though the schema.org `EntryPoint` model is a little different (more elaborate) than the proposed `dcat:DataService` modeling - see https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/blob/dcat-issue317-simon/dcat/examples/csiro-stratchart.schema.ttl#L42

I think I already contacted the (geo)science guys for feedback on our work, but I've cced them again here in case I missed it.

They appear to have directly borrowed from DCAT, using "data catalog"
and "distribution" as DCAT does. It definitely makes sense to ping this group for any comments on DCAT. Andrea, can you do that?
