Authority is the key attribute of government data - it is used to make decisions or enforce laws, or to shape markets (stock markets etc)
eg the inflation rate
also expressing provenance is one of the things we can do that helps overcome the socio-cultural issues inside government inside government that deters data publishing
finally, government is a large user of its own data - for example for evidence based policy making
if we are using data to inform policy decisions, it is important that we know where that data came from and how it was collected
the statisicians have done much work on this - and of course, governments tend to emply a lot of statisticians
re, over engineering, Luc is right about the trade-offs, what we need is something simple to express, which doesn't necessarily mean the underlying ontology has to too simplistic
