Re: [dxwg] Change domain or create superclass of dcat:Distribution

1. Yes. The class names are in italics in the diagram which is the UML convention for 'Abstract'

And there is a usage note on `dcat:Resource` which says 
>  It is strongly recommended to use a more specific sub-class when available. 

A similar recommendation would be made on `dcat:Representation`. 

2. Absolutely. In a different thread somewhere I already made this point too ... though FRBR has more layers (though arguably by sticking to just four it might not be expressive enough for some cases). However, I don't think FRBR is that widely known outside of library circles, and even there is somewhat controversial (@kcoyle wrote a book on how is has hindered more than helped!)
