@kcoyle a PDF or a SHACL document are both concrete representations of things, therefore they cannot be `Datasets` - which are conceptual things. A dataset might be _represented_ by PDF or SHACL `Distributions`. 

This is the core of the issue that @rob-metalinkage raised - by implication at least. i.e. that there is a separation between `Profile` and `Profile-Description` (or more generally between `Technical Specification` and `Specification Document`) which is parallel to the one that we already have between `Dataset` and `Distribution`.
