@larsgsvensson Yes. The question is how would this relates to DCAT.

In this case I would imagine a dataset with 2 distributions, one for xml.gz, one for jsonld.gz, each described as shown above. This is necessary because of the other distribution description properties such as a schema, which would be different for XML and for JSON-LD.

This leaves the question of how would `/datasets/ds1` be described in DCAT (a Data Service?), and how would it be then used by applications such as data catalogs - they would need to discover the options available to show them to their users, and probably a JavaScript implementation of the content negotiation, as it cannot be done using a simple HTML `href`.
