Hi Annette,

> In my mind, the conneg bit that's needed is about adding the ability to negotiate not the profile itself but the distribution (of a dataset) that supports a preferred profile.

The second is our main aim,
but conneg clearly also makes sense for the profile itself
if that is available in multiple representations.

> Content negotiation already has the capability to handle the case of requesting a copy of astrodcat itself as astrodcat.rdf vs astrodcat.xml vs astrodcat.json.

Indeed, it's this mechanism I propose to reuse
(but no need to mandate that).
