My hunch is that this will be difficult/impossible to write a water-tight rule around. In which case, I think the best we can do is 
(a) offer some guidance, probably in the form of examples
(b) trust the provider to make a sensible judgement about what is a 'dataset' to their potential audience. 

Remember, DCAT is aimed at a very general set of use-cases. The catalogue-dataset-distribution backbone is an important and useful pattern but might not map perfectly onto every useful application.
