> @riccardoAlbertoni I like your definition, although the last sentence still slips over into some data types that I think are a bit suspect. Can we find a way to say it without naming types that we aren't sure about? Datasets surely must be digital in nature (ones and zeroes). They also are "sets" ("collections of data"). Saying that may be sufficient.

The examples included so far were already included in DCAT 2 ( section 5.1, third item in the item list). That, of course, does not imply we cannot change them, I am saying this just to make clear it is not something we are adding now. Though I think I concur with your suggestions to rely on real examples and not being very imaginative, I think that here the examples are functional to convey that the notion of datasets in DCAT is broad and inclusive.  Also, in this specific list, I do not see any items that I would consider an evident stretch. So from my side, I would be inclined to keep them, as they explicitly deliver the broadness and inclusivity of a DCAT dataset.  Does this make any sense to you (@kcoyle)?
