There is no way you can predict all the forms of Web based API that will emerge and die over the lifetime of DCAT. The appropriate response is to develop a profile of DCAT to achieve interoperability for a given API and service metadata form - and if it becomes very popular people will just use the profile to the exclusion of others.

In a project I am creating a draft DCAT-QB profile - and in previous work I created a URL templating based on QB to describe the parameters in queries and templates.  If some variant of OpenAPI emerges with a canonical means to describe data dimensions and queries I'd image it will become quite popular.. for a while.
