>From what I can tell the SHACL expression was non-normative - it was "retro-fitted" later to aid in implementing the DCAT-AP profile, which was described in a document form.

Machine readable expressions are potentially only partially expressive of a profile.  So the Profile is a identifiable thing, and its expressions (like dcat:distributions) need to be related with enough metadata to understand the role of that relation. 

the profiles ontology allows for a description of the profile and its interoperability implications w.r.t. other profiles, then is agnostic about what forms (if any) are available to express the profile constraints.
