With the new changes, the example would be:

[] a sd:Service ;
    sd:defaultDatasetDescription <URI> .

If the service description document contains more information (the actual dataset description) about <URI>, then you're done. If it doesn't and you want more details, you can try dereferencing <URI> to get the description.

Does that clear things up?
