Re: [dxwg] Question: how to catalog relational database data in DCAT? (#1240)

DCATv2 has slots for 1-5
1. the `dcat:landingPage` (human readable) and `dcat:endpointURL` (API) are separate if needed
2. `dcterms:conformsTo` shoudl indicate the API standard
3. the data schema and format/mediaType are part of the description of the payload (i.e. the `dcat:Distribution`, using `dcterms:conformsTo` and `dcterms:format` or `dcat:mediaType`)
4. the query model and details are expected to be provided as part of the dcat:endpointDescription
5. ... which might also indicate ranges, etc

No model for the value of `endpointDescription` was provided, since it was expected that this would be specified by the API standard, so 5. might not be covered but this is out of scope for DCAT itself. 

I agree that the directions of some of the relationships between Dataset, Distribution and DataService might not be quite what you were expecting, but I think there are slots available.
