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

I haven't yet seen a "live" PROF example of an artifact that plays more than one role. (I think this will be fairly common.) The artifact does not change when playing multiple roles. If the ResourceDescriptor describes the artifact - by analogy to a library catalog record describing a book - then you want one RD and multiple roles. This makes me reluctant to have the role in the RD graph because it in essence changes the nature of description. I think you want a "pure" RD that only describes the artifact and that can be linked to one or more profiles with roles. Exactly what code you need for that I will leave to others.

For a real life example, the BIBFRA.ME profiles all use the same guidance document(s), and the guidance documents themselves are used to support a fairly large number of profiles. So we should assume a many-to-many situation, and our descriptions of resources should be function-neutral because we can't determine how someone will choose to use them in the future.
