Two things:

1. I agree with @oystein-asnes regarding the interpretation that a dcat:Distribution can only have one format. In part due to the DCAT-AP constraint and in part from the definition of dcat:Distribution in the original DCAT recommendation that says that distributions are used to "represent different formats of the dataset or different endpoints".
2. Maybe we do not need to introduce a new property like dcat:availableFormats. Maybe we can reuse the dct:format property on DataService. I see nothing in the Dublin Core specification hindering repeating it, the limitation on repeating it on dcat:Distribution is based on the semantics of the class not the property itself.
