Re: [dxwg] Relation to real world entities (#168)

I've been trying to trace back this issue to the UCR and discussions, and couldn't find a clear link (there are meetings referring 'use cases on real world objects' (see [here]( but it is unclear if it relates to this issue - it would be good to hear from @jpullmann). Indeed, there seems to be no related use case in the [UCR document]( 

However, at the moment there is no way to link a ```dcat:Resource``` to the entity it refers to and this would be an important relationship. There is ```dcat:theme``` that relates the resource to a category (the range is ```skos:Concept```, and it is defined as a subclass of ```dct:subject```). I note that the (non-normative) [alignment to]( associates ```dcat:theme``` to ```sdo:about```. But my understanding is that ```sdo:about``` is broader, and provides to link to entites, as does the term used in OBO Foundry ontologies: ['is about']( term.

We had relaxed the ```dcat:theme```'s domain (see - perhaps we should relax the range too (or consider other property)?
