*  I think we have to be carefull about using the words abstract and instance.


Agree. Let’s not use those words. 


*  From the discussions, it seems to me that the Dataset is an abstract thing with instances that are the distributions.

*  This is what I have understood from the posts from Bernadette and from you. And (until now) I do not agree with this.


This is *not* what I have argued. Please look at the diagram and examples in section 4 of DCAT http://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-dcat/#vocabulary-overview. That section gives an overview of the modelling approach of DCAT. I would agree that there are many other ways you could model this space, but DCAT is just what it is.
