ISSUE-44 (sizeOfDcatDistribution): replace properties dcat:size and dcat:bytes with one property dcat:byteSize [DCAT]

http://www.w3.org/2011/gld/track/issues/44

Raised by: Fadi Maali
On product: DCAT

currently a size of distribution is represented in a manner similar to the following:
:dist dcat:size [dcat:bytes 1024; rdfs:label "1kB"]

While this is expressive, it usually requires a blank node and can be hard to query and represent in RDFa
the proposal by Richard Cyganiak is defining dcat:byteSize with xsd:decimal range stating that the value can be approximate
