I already admitted that the wording in DCAT 2014 is a little loose, so it indeed doesn't contain the exact text that you are looking for: "one distribution is associated with one format." But you knew that already; it wasn't really necessary for you to ask me.

However, at the same time, the specification does not anywhere imply that a single distribution could have more than one format; none of the examples give that impression and the text that I referred to does imply, at least to me, that there is indeed a maximum of one format for a distribution -- _a specific_ form, _the_ format..

Other than that, I am just stating what my honest understanding was of the intention of the group that developed DCAT 2014 and of which I was a member.
