Re: [dxwg] Attribution does not cover most MARC relators and other roles (#1521)

`dct:Agent` is defined as "A resource that acts or has the power to act." I normally tend to interpret the word "resource" as in RDF, i.e., a thing. It is true, though, that all DCMI-defined subproperties of `dct:relation` are entity-entity or entity-entity-ish relations, see [1].  If `dct:relation` is deemed to be specific for entity-entity relations, then a generalized form of `dcat:Relationship` could take a different property to link instances of `dcat:Relationship` to instances of `foaf:Agent` (or `dct:Agent`, which seems to be very similar). Perhaps something like "dcat:party". Or perhaps "dcat:agent", though not `prov:agent` because that would only select `foaf:Agent`s that are responsible for the entity's existence, excluding cases like addressee, recipient, dedicatee, etc.

`dct:conformsTo, dct:hasFormat, dct:hasVersion, dct:hasPart, dct:isFormatOf, dcterms:isPartOf, dct:isReferencedBy, dct:isReplacedBy, dct:isRequiredBy, dct:isVersionOf, dct:references, dct:replaces, dct:requires`
