@smrgeoinfo The problem that I have with the DCAT distribution is that it is not properly reified - nothing in it states that the triples there are statements about the file found at the access URL. If those statements are to hold true for the access URL then the access URL should be the object of 'hasArtifact'. The other option is to explicitly reify the distribution to the file being described using "rdf:about". The third option, which I think cannot be the case, would be to require that the URI that is the object of "hasArtifact" and the subject of the thing of type "dcat:Distribution" be required to respond appropriately to content negotiation for requests for a certain file type. 

I am also assuming that under this design, two files in different formats are different distributions . This was confirmed elsewhere by @makxdekkers.
