>     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 do agree that this decision should be left to the data provider, but I believe @dr-shorthair was pointing out a way to show what are distributions (as informationally equivalent representations of a dataset) vs other files that are about the dataset but are not a dataset distribution. IMO, it would be to the data provider to decide if a 'visualisation' of the dataset is an informationally equivalent representation of the dataset with respect to the other available representations. 

So, I think this issue should be analysed in conjunction with https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/issues/411 and possibly also #433 and #531. I created a project to see if it help us addressing all these issues simultaneously: https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/projects/8
