Re: [dxwg] Unclear classification of dataset/resources (#1187)

@aidig , sincere apologies for not having replied to your feedback.

As the DCAT specification underwent a number of changes, I would like to check with you whether you think this issue is still valid.

At least one of your points (i.e., the use of `dcterms:type` with `dcat:Resource`) seemed to be addressed by the usage note in [ยง6.4 Class: Cataloged Resource]( - quoting:

> The class of all cataloged resources, the super-class of dcat:Dataset, dcat:DataService, dcat:Catalog and any other member of a dcat:Catalog. This class carries properties common to all cataloged resources, including datasets and data services. It is strongly recommended to use a more specific sub-class. When describing a resource which is not a dcat:Dataset or dcat:DataService, it is recommended to create a suitable sub-class of dcat:Resource, or use dcat:Resource with the dcterms:type property to indicate the specific type.

About the general issue of what should be considered a dataset, I think the discussion moved to

Please let us know if anything raised in this issue is yet to be addressed and/or not dealt with in a separate issue.
