Yes, of course - in this example this is actually the result of a
DESCRIBE query. I could have made the void:example property directly
point to the Jamendo end-point, eg.

Yes, it was just an example - replacing the ASK by a SELECT ?ds
?sparql would make sense, here

Btw, I posted a follow-up on that at
At the bottom of the post, there's a link to the discussion that
