I don't disagree with the text here, but I think it worth pointing out that it is a bit paradoxical with respect to what some of us have been asserting with regard to profile negotiation.
"The definition text of dcat:Distribution has been revised to clarify that distributions are primarily representations of datasets. As such, all distributions of a given dataset should be informationally equivalent. " Here, it is assumed that representations of a dataset are informationally equivalent, but profile negotiation would return datasets that are not informationally equivalent, because different profiles may include different subsets of the dataset. My preference is to keep distributions informationally equivalent and ask ourselves if there is a way to make it clear that profile negotiation does not deliver informationally equivalent responses.
