I'm going to throw in my €0.02 here…

I'd like to see this field hardcoded to have the following values:

- File
- Example
- Metadata
- Documentation
- Code

In the case of an RDF dataset, this might be used as follows:

- zipped download of the entire RDF dump: “file”
- SPARQL endpoint: “api”
- a resolvable URI pointing to one example resource: “example”
- an associated RDF Schema file: “metadata”
- a PDF white paper describing the dataset: “docs”
- the link to the GitHub project page: “code”
