Re: [dxwg] FPWD comment: use dcat:Distribution for Resource (#529)

@aisaac , I share your interpretation of @smrgeoinfo 's proposal. 

Making a comparison with ADMS/DCAT, `prof:ResouceDescriptor` is an intermediate entity (not present in ADMS and DCAT) linking a `prof:Profile` (which would be an `adms:Asset` in ADMS) to one or more artifacts (which would be an `adms:AssetDistribution` in ADMS). Consequently, all what is about format, data schema, etc. should be an attribute of the "artifact" (as distribution), not of the `prof:ResourceDescriptor`.

My concern is that I'm not yet seeing a strong case why we need an intermediate, abstract entity, instead of making `prof:ResourceDescription` a distribution, and the property linking to the artifact something similar to `dcat:accessURL`.
