 I am afraid that I don't see the implication about subclassing that you are mentioning, as in my mind not all the metadata record are catalogRecord.
 CatalogRecord is a specific metadata record for an entry in the catalog (..it is the metadata record of a metadata record .. ),  but aren't dcat:Dataset and dcat:dataService metadata records for the actual datasets and services? 

My apologies if I have forgotten any previous discussion on that point,  but I was assuming that when we use the expression "metadata record" in 
>dcat:Catalog represents a catalog, which is a dataset in which each individual item is a metadata record describing some resource; the scope of dcat:Catalog is collections of metadata about datasets or data services. 
we were referring to all the kinds of metadata records.
That also because in a dataset representing a catalog  I would include all the above. 

If I am wrong and the intended meaning was "metadata record" = "dcat:CatalogRecord", 
in order to avoid that others might get confused as I am, I suggest replacing "metadata record" with dcat:CatalogRecord,  as we use "metadata record" in the document only once, in the sentence above.
