Thanks for pointing this out, @matthiaspalmer .

`dcat:contributor` is not explicitly included in the DCAT vocabulary as none of the contributed use cases and related requirements was asking for that.

The references in the DCAT spec to `dct:contributor` were added to give an example of a generic agent role. But indeed this may be misleading / generate confusion.

We probably need to remove such references, or rephrase them to make it clear that `dct:contributor` is used just as an example of a generic agent role.

@agbeltran , @dr-shorthair , @davebrowning , @pwin , @riccardoAlbertoni , WDYT?
