Hmm, my gut feels differently than your gut. I would say yes, they would
be coded with either or both of exampleOfWork and workExample.

exampleOfWork: "A creative work that this work is an
example/instance/realization/derivation of."

Let's add LaTeX to the mix. If you are in the business of running a
repository of open access scholarly articles, you might want to offer
LaTeX, HTML, and PDF versions of each article. Each format would exist
at a different URL*, and they are three different instances of the
same creative work, right?

* Well, okay, you could use content-negotiation to serve them up at the
same URL, but that seems unlikely to occur on the normal web.
