I think you misunderstood my question about non-abstractions, so let me make it clearer.

As I understand it:
DCAT dataset is an abstraction. It is only the distributions that are "real" - that is, that can be accessed. There is no access to a dataset EXCEPT through a distribution (in DCAT). 

Therefore the non-abstraction above refers to a distribution (as defined in DCAT, which has some permanence) or some other "thing" that is returned from content negotiation. What I'm wondering is whether, in DCAT parlance, what is served through conneg is a distribution, or if it is something else, or if this isn't the right question?
