== Examples for dataset series ==
#81 was closed by #651. However, I still haven't found specific guidance for my two common dataset series cases:
1. Dataset of all addresses in the Czech Republic split into datasets for individual (6000+) towns. - This is a dataset series divided by geographical region. How do I specify a single entity (dataset?) with all the information?
2. Dataset with budget information per year. Each year is a separate dataset. How do I represent the entity (dataset?) with budget for all years?

Generally, how do I represent the series?
- n+first `dcat:Dataset` with no distributions connected to the multiple datasets using `dct:hasPart`? `dct:hasPart` for some reason is only specified in `dcat:Catalog`, not `dcat:Dataset` or `dcat:Resource`. I know that there is nothing prohibiting me from using `dct:hasPart` on `dcat:Dataset` for this, but I would wish that other people/implementations understood what exactly I mean by that.
- Should I use my own `dcat:Relationship` for that?

I think this is such a common use case that it needs to be explicitly dealt with. I was hoping #81 would deal with that, but the current resolution does not provide any guidance in this matter. Or am I missing something? Could we flesh out examples covering this?
