Actually, there are other, more relevant, distinctions. A DCAT-AP is an
instance of an AP, and is not in our charge. I'm not sure what
"profiles" alone means, but there are two other concepts that we might
be able to define:

application profile - this includes profiles of executable files such as [1]

metadata application profile - profiles that define "a set of metadata
elements, policies, and guidelines defined for a particular application."[2]

I suspect that [2] is closer to our charge, but we can debate that.
