Re profiles discussion..

As part of the work I am doing with the OGC developing a Linked Data view
of a knowledge base of specifications, profiles and supporting artefacts I
find the need to have a formal ontology to define profiles, and the nature
of artefacts that support validation and implementation of these profiles
(like SHACL documents, schematron, human readable documents, testing
guidelines, unit tests etc. I have also been discussing activities with the
Australian Government Linked Data working group, where a key concern is how
profiles of ISO standards relate to Australian Standards and industry de
jure and de facto standards, and the general desire to have formal
ontologies to back up descriptions of how such things are linked.

so, as part of the process of "define what we mean by profiles" I propose
to submit a straw man OWL model and try to keep it in sync with the
semantics of any text definitions, and propose this as an extra
deliverable, which with OGC and at least one other we should be able to
meet requirements for a rec track for this.

Have put the OGC view (based on ISO concepts)
