@greiner - some other "uses" relationship can handle cases where terms are used but conformance to a "base" is not.  If you import that base in OWL imports of course you buy _every_ restriction in the base - so if you conform to OWL semantics you conform to the base.  

generally simple vocabs without OWL axiomitisation introduce just one type of constraint - if you use a term T then you honour its datatype and semantics...

all RDF vocabs also conform to the RDF specification at a low level - the same is true for every encoding - so whilst it would be technically correct to describe these using dct:conformsTo obviously nobody would and there is a more specialised relationship (dc:format) that states the same thing for the encoding aspect only.  So - its a matter of community choice whether to include common base vocabularies in the statements of conformance they wish to make.
