Hi Makx,

Thanks for the comment and for proposing text for clarifying properties descriptions.

Here is the list of changes I plan to deploy to the document, please let me know if you think they are sufficient (I think I can not apply them to the Spec now):
1. change accessURL description to the text you suggested: 
A landing page, feed, SPARQL endpoint or other type of resource that gives access to the distribution of the dataset
2. remove "the value is a URL" from the usage note from both downloadURL and accessURL
3. add "Use accessURL, and not downloadURL, when it is definitely not a download or when you are not sure whether it is." to the accessURL usage note
4. change downloadURL description to the text you proposed:
A file that contains the distribution of the dataset in a given format
