With the addition of ```dcat:Resource``` on DCAT2, we have already indicated that this class is  "an extension point for defining a catalog of any kind of resource" (see https://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-dcat-2/#dcat-scope), and thus we have offered the possibility of a broader scope beyond datasets and data services. 

Even if our main focus is around datasets and data services (as represented by the use cases and requirements we have addressed and those that are pending), I think it would be useful to show how the DCAT2 terminology could be used for cataloguing other kinds of resources. This doesn't mean that we need to describe those resources (and in fact, we probably shouldn't).
