This class is not intended to be used directly, but is the parent class of dcat:Dataset, dcat:DataService and dcat:Catalog. Member items in a catalog should be members of one of the sub-classes, or of a sub-class of these, or of a sub-class of dcat:Resource defined in a DCAT profile or other DCAT application. dcat:Resource is effectively an extension point for defining a catalog of any kind of resource.

I would indeed replace "item" with "resource", and I would rephrase the above definition as follows:

> dcat:Resource represents a dataset, a data service or any other resource that may be described by a metadata record in a catalog.
