@nicholascar , I'm not questioning here having `prof:ResourceDescriptor`, but I disagree about your point (1). 

According to the (quite broad) DCAT definition of "dataset", a standard/specification can be considered as a dataset (although it is also other things). This position was made explicit when ADMS was contributed to GLD (the WG in charge of DCAT), who made `adms:Asset` a subclass of `dcat:Dataset` (which was not the case in the original ADMS version).

I also don't see the difference between "representation of" and "representation of part of" when talking about distribution, as there is no requirement for `dcat:Distribution`'s preventing them from representing just parts of a dataset. 

Validation constraints, etc. more than "parts" of the representation of a profile, concern the "role" of a resource descriptor, and the same resource descriptor can play more than one role.
