@makxdekkers I think it depends on how "data" has been defined. If it is defined so broadly that any file of ones and zeroes is data, then it includes an e-copy of War and Peace. I don't think that's the object. But it doesn't look like "data" is itself defined, which may be the problem here. I wouldn't consider a profile that is a PDF a dataset. I'm not clear in my own mind if I would consider a profile expressed in SHACL a dataset. Yet I can see serving SKOS vocabularies as datasets. 

Summary: I think this needs to be solved by defining the term "data", of which a set is called a "dataset"
