ISSUE-42 (valuesForDataFormat): What values to use to describe formats of dcat:Distribution? [dcat]

Raised by: Fadi Maali
On product: dcat

MIME Type is a very good candidate, however there are some issues to resolve:
1. some formats like ESRI shape files do not have a standardised MIME type. 
2. Do we use URIs("http://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/text/csv") or the textual description("text/csv")? 
3. Should dcat recommend values for frequently occurring types?
