Thanks for doing this Karen - its very helpful.

A couple of suggestions and notes: (i'll leave you to edit it unless you
ask me to)

1) I think Andrea's effort to list a few different constraint languages
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Zty4jTzhG0_1xoJlDOMq1XeHelIwVP2-STw6_-_ZxR4/edit#gid=0
is
significant - it pretty much evidences that there is no single constraint
language to rule them all. IMHO this needs to be part of the guidance - to
choose the most appropriate constraint language for your community..

2) apropos the list of "data models" - Antoine's model is i think an early
attempt to render the profiledesc concepts being proposed - (correct me if
i'm wrong) - and it is in any way the same data model that is expressed
more formally in profiledesc.
Stephane's model has a different scope - it addresses the much broader
topic of schema mapping - if you split out the profile description part it
is trivially consistent with profiledesc, and reinforces its role and
design - a profile subclasses dcterms:Standard - though this is at risk if
DC tightens definitions of dcterms:Standard in a non-backward compatible
way.

I havent located the reference (i think from you) to the proposed
redefinition of dct:Standard - if this is indeed a possibility then can you
drop in a link under the data models section - or perhaps we need to reopen
