This is the key question, isn't it?  We're certainly more interested in content/data than in versions of software but I'm struggling to see how that could work in practice.  For example, if I say that I'm using a specific version of a `dcat:DataService` and then the end point changes to a new version then it may behave differently - for example, if the previous endpoint had a defect/bug that was then fixed.  Wouldn't some users want that change to be reflected in the `dcat:DataService` version?

So I don't see how we can limit it **just** to the content/data... Of course I may be missing a subtlety somewhere that we need to explain.
