aisaac has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/dxwg:

== Specify the semantics of prof:isTransitiveProfileOf wrt prof:isProfileOf ==
One note at https://w3c.github.io/dxwg/profilesont/#Property:isTransitiveProfileOf says

> While this ontology provides this `prof:isProfileOf` & `prof:isTransitiveProfileOf` pair of properties, it does not specify how a particular implementation of a Profile that is related to another Profile or Standard by `prof:isTransitiveProfileOf` should implement specific inferences. 

That talk about lack of inference could be confusing. As a matter of fact if PROF is to follow the SKOS pattern for `skos:broader` and `skos:broaderTransitive`, the idea is that `prof:isTransityProfileOf` should be a transitive property and it should be a super-property of `prof:isProfile`. It isn't either, at the moment.
