I don't want to unduly broaden this issue, but the discussion on `dcat:distribution` / `dct:relation` brings to my mind a couple of considerations:

1. Do we have already UCs and/or implementation evidence on the use of specific subproperties of `dct:relation` which can be used to model some specific resource types? In such a case, should be provide guidance on when to use them? E.g., in the requirements for data to be documented in the JRC Data Catalogue we identified 3 resource types that should be supported: distributions (`dcat:distribution`), publications about a dataset (`dct:isReferencedBy`), and those not fitting in either of the previous categories (`dct:relation`).

2. @dr-shorthair 's example includes documents that could be seen as dataset "visualisations". Should they be considered or not as distributions? Or, at least, should this be something to be left to the decision of the data provider?

I'll create separate issues for these 2 points.
