The problem is the fine line between same and different. Here, the main thing all distributions have in common is that they were created by the same code in the same activity. Content-wise they are true variants of each other. All of them make up the dataset, but they are useful individually and in combination. `dataid:SingleFile` is already `subclassOf` `dcat:Distribution`, but we might should switch to `dataid:FileCollection` to better model the semantics.  DCAT 2 seems to evolve in the DataID (https://wiki.dbpedia.org/projects/dbpedia-dataid) direction, which is quite good. 

I am specifically asking here, because we host all the metadata of 5k monthly files in a sparql endpoint: https://databus.dbpedia.org/yasgui/ 

Having an extra dataset node for each file would be infeasible and impractical. For us it would be helpful to have a better definition of variants. But we can also create one ourselves as an extension.
