GeoDCAT-AP already includes services as independent entities, and links catalogues to services using a generic property (dcat:hasPart).

dcat:service is a more specific and appropriate property than dcat:hasPart, so for sure it would be worth discussing its inclusion in GeoDCAT-AP - but taking into account backward compatibility (which may mean keep using at the same time dcat:hasPart) - see SEMICeu/GeoDCAT-AP#10

So, the question is whether dcat:service should be added in GeoDCAT-AP (which has a requirement for having service metadata) and then re-used in DCAT-AP metadata, when needed, or rather this property should be part of DCAT-AP itself (here the question is whether there is a need of having services as a resource type supported already in DCAT-AP).
