@jakubklimek @dr-shorthair I can see good points in both your opinions. I agree with @dr-shorthair that people who load dcat.ttl are obviously interested in that particular context, but I agree with @jakubklimek that it is dangerous to make any 'local' assertions about other peoples' classes and properties for the reasons he outlines. I myself made the error once to make an assertion (really a cut-and-paste error) about an external property that created a conflict with the canonical definition, with obvious interoperability consequences.
I have looked back at the Turtle expression of DCAT 2014 and saw that there *only* the DCAT classes and properties were included, and none of the terms of 'external' vocabularies. Maybe that the safest way to proceed, removing all non-DCAT terms from the ttl?
