Yes, we opened the issue to investigate if the property ```dcat:size``` plus a unit of measurement provided more flexibility than ```dcat:byteSize``` but we tracked back the reasons why ```dcat:size``` was deprecated (e.g. it would usually require the use of a blank node, see link above for more info). So, unless you (or others) think it would be necessary, I don't think we need to undeprecate ```dcat:size```. 

I wonder though if with the current representation is too cumbersome (or if there are limitations) to represent dataset distributions that are actually terabytes of data  (e.g. multi-dimensional microscopy images can weigh up to several TB each and datasets can be hundreds of TB in total).
