Discussion in Sprint meeting was that 
- the lack of domain constraints on properties needed for citation (e.g. `dct:creator`, `dct:publisher` etc) means that they could be used on a `dcat:Distribution` if required
- we are reluctant to copy more of the properties associated with a `dcat:Dataset`  down to the `dcat:Distribution` class, as it muddies the model. We do want to preserve the core distinction between datasets and distributions
- we generally expect citations to be to datasets. If only a specific distribution is intended then that should be indicated with additional narrative alongside the formal citation 

The consensus was not to change the model for `dcat:Distribution`.
