Incorrect DCAT output on the data.json endpoint

Hi,

I'm a member of the CKAN ​maintainers team and I'm using the DCAT extension to import datasets from an ArcGIS Open Data instance from a client (following roughly these steps). This essentially uses the data.json endpoint:

http://opendata.arcgis.com/data.json

I've noticed that some the URLs for the different distributions or resources for the datasets were not imported correctly, and found that the key for `accessURL` in some of the distributions is wrong:

distribution": [

...
{

    "@type": "dcat:Distribution",
    "title": "CSV",
    "format": "CSV",
    "mediaType": "text/csv",
    "downloadUrl": "http://opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/9b70131cd4984300bd8af47c4176ca77_0.csv"

},
{

    "@type": "dcat:Distribution",
    "title": "KML",
    "format": "KML",
    "mediaType": "application/vnd.google-earth.kml+xml",
    "downloadUrl": "http://opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/9b70131cd4984300bd8af47c4176ca77_0.kml"

},

    {   
        "@type": "dcat:Distribution",
        "title": "Shapefile",
        "format": "ZIP",
        "mediaType": "application/zip",
        "downloadURL": "http://opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/9b70131cd4984300bd8af47c4176ca77_0.zip"
    }   

],

Note `accessUrl` on eg KML vs `accessURL` on the shapefile. The DCAT standard is clear on what the correct case is so I think that's a bug on the ArcGIS side.

Is this something that can be fixed on future versions? If so what sort of timeline can be expected?

Many thanks
