@matthiaspalmer , based on what you say, there's actually some confusion.

Properties `prov:wasAttributedTo` / `dcat:hadRole` has been added in order to provide a standard pattern to be used to express roles not available in existing vocabularies, and specifically in [DCTERMS]. So, if you want to use a role from [DCTERMS] which is not explicitly included in DCAT (as `dct:contributor`), you should indeed use it, and you should not `prov:wasAttributedTo` / `dcat:hadRole` for that.

This is basically the sense of all the passages you quote, and you can probably find more background information in the use cases that triggered this feature in DCAT2 - see, e.g., https://www.w3.org/TR/dcat-ucr/#ID13

So, answering your questions:

> **Should dct:contributor be expressed as a direct property?**

YES

> **Should dct:contributor be expressed via prov:wasAttributedTo?**

NO
