The definition has been tweaked slightly so that the word 'representation' appears explicitly, and API and feed is removed (DataService should be used for those applications) - 

> A specific representation of a dataset. A dataset might be available in several different forms, and these forms might comprise both different serializations or different schematic arrangements of the same data. Examples of distributions include a CSV file, a netCDF file, or a data-cube

(Compare to DCAT-2014 where it says "Represents a specific available form of a dataset. Each dataset might be available in different forms, these forms might represent different formats of the dataset or different endpoints. Examples of distributions include a downloadable CSV file, an API or an RSS feed")

@jpullmann is this enough to mark this issue 'closed'?
