If you cannot contemplate content negotiation occurring in your implementations then you are free to use the long-hand version @dr-shorthair suggests.  If you have content negotiation and use that pattern then there is a lot of redundant duplication of the resource identifier, but it doesnt break.  DCAT-AP is effectively saying thats the pattern you MUST use.   If that is unacceptable to a user of DCAT-AP (such as implied by the feedback) thats still an issue with DCAT-AP not DCAT itself.  The response to the question should not be dictated by whether people wish to use content-negotiation in their own environments, or understand its application in general, but whether DCAT itself needs to change - and I dont think it does because its not the source of the restriction which is apparently problematic.
