The alignment of DCAT and FRBR [1] is incomplete -  
- `frbr:Work` is effectively implemented in `dcat:Dataset`  
- `frbr:Manifestation` is implemented in `dcat:Distribution` 
- `frbr:Expression` is not implemented in DCAT - probably because in practice there is no artefact

`dct:conformsTo` provides a hook to indicate the standard (which can be a schema or profile) that a resource conforms to. But in DCAT that is associated with `dcat:Resource|dcat:Dataset` and not with `dcat:Distribution`. How is it typically used? 

In order to fully match FRBR we would need a way to indicate different _schematic_ representations of a dataset (i.e. conforming to different profiles), alongside different _serializations_ (media-types).
