Unfortunately this didn't get any attention during this phase of DCAT revision. While it is a small, logical, change, folks always get concerned about backward compatibility. 

In fact the current `rdfs:range` (from DCAT 2014) is `rdfs:Literal`, with a _recommendation_ to use `xsd:decimal` but which also allows shorthands like "3.5k" or "10MB" which are sometimes used as approximations. IMHO those should probably be in a new prop 'approximateSize' or similar since **byteSize** is so clearly specific. But I think this has to stay on the backlog until we get the CR/PR/Rec out now.
