@nicholascar  What would be the advantage of including a relationships between `dcat:bytSize` and `qudt:bytes`? 
One reason maybe not to rely on QUDT is that it is developed by an organisation that does not seem to be a formal standards organisation. Their website does not say anything about their processes other than stating that the Board of Directors have the power of approval, but there is no visible community beyond that board.
Just as a minor comment, I browsed through the QUDT specification and could not find a definition of the semantic meaning of `qudt:bytes`: clicking on the link in http://www.qudt.org/doc/2017/DOC_SCHEMA-QUDT-DATATYPES-v2.0.html just tells you it is an `owl:DatatypeProperty`. Now it might be obvious -- "the number of bytes in the described resource" -- but I think it would be good practice to actually say that somewhere.
