On the issue of what is an instance of DCAT, I don't know under which circumstances the question would be relevant. There are just cases where (some of) DCAT is used. What would be the purpose of answering 'yes' or 'no' to the question? I hope it's not to make a value judgment, declaring some applications of DCAT to be 'wrong'.
As @kcoyle writes, it's an issue -- I wouldn't call it a problem -- with mixing and matching. I might have an application that mixes and matches Dublin Core, DCAT, ADMS, schema.org and more. Is a snippet of metadata that contains some or all of those an 'instance' of all of them? Should we care?
