So in a DCAT-AP context we are getting national catalogues with refinements on the core DCAT-AP.  AFAIK there is a DCAT-AP-IT for italy, and a DCAT-AP-SK for Slovakia.  The convention seems to be developing in this way using a 2char country code.

If I want to merge then perhaps I just want the DCAT-AP version without any country-specific additions.

Would this be an appropriate and testable use case for this?

Annette, thanks for the reality check. And as Ruben says, the main aim
is to access data that matches one or more application profiles.

The only requirement seems to be:

6.8.3 Profile negotiation
Create a way to negotiate choice of profile between clients and servers

Perhaps that needs to be more specific so that it is clearly about
choosing data that is consistent with a given application profile.
