Re: [dxwg] Service vs endpoint (#1242)

I have been approaching this from the point of view of someone looking first for data, and then for how to access the data. From this point of view, the DataSet is the primary resource of interest, and different services to access the data would be different distributions.   This is similar to [Example 49](, but I would add distribution elements in the DataSet object that point to the DataService objects via the accessService property.   The question of what identifies a service is key.  I'd argue that from the point of view of an application parsing the metadata for a dataset to determine how to get the data in a format it can use, the service is defined by 1. the protocol for communicating (transport, request syntax and semantics) 2.  information model for the content 3. the serialization scheme(s) for the data in service responses (xml, xml schema, JSON, JSON schema, rdf, rdf vocabulary).
