Thanks Karen - my concern is that we have our eyes open about the risks and benefits of re-using elements from other vocabularies, and the granularity of re-use. #111 is the place to have a general discussion of this topic. 

For the range of the proposed `dcat:spatialResolution` nothing would make me happier than to be shown a solution that saves us from having to bloat DCAT with new data-types (s.l.) like `dcat:Measure`, but I can't find a suitable class in any of the well-governed vocabularies in the W3C orbit. If anyone has a candidate please speak up! Failing that, we need a structure for scaled quantities, so a new class in DCAT is the fall-back solution. I'll be fine with using `sdmx-attribute:unitMeasure` if the team prefers to lean that way, but I thought putting it all in one namespace was a little cleaner and saves implementers from having to consult yet another spec for the definition ... 

Alternatively, we could just make it an `owl:DatatypeProperty` called `dcat:spatialResolutionInMetres` with a range `xsd:decimal`. I'm kinda leaning that direction given these other complications.
