For me it wasn't an question of what to link to when using dc:subject;
but rather which predicate to use when linking from a foaf:Document to a
skos:Concept. dc:subject seemed the ideal solution.

Can dc:subject be used to link straight from a document to a dbpedia
resource? Maybe. The definition is sufficiently woolly. Personally if I
were linking directly between them I'd use foaf:topic/foaf:page.

I use the role attribute which is not defined by the XHTML+RDFa DTD.
