@aisaac Since the guidance document is essentially a kind of "best practices" I think that we can suggest some best practices that could be implemented using the PROF ontology. Actually, I think that is indeed the role of the guidance document - not to say "anything goes, here's an ontology" but to talk about what is needed for a good "profile experience". Since this is just a document, some other mechanism (ShEx or SHACL, for example) would need to enforce that, but I don't think we need to supply that as part of our work. Do note that our definition states a "named set of constraints" so already that appears to be a defined requirement, although we haven't yet fully defined what we consider to be constraints within that definition.

As we move from talking about profiles as defined in our definition and talking about profiles as a set of resources (which I think will be a new concept for many readers) we have to decide how to do that and where it fits into the document. That's one of my concerns regarding the overall structure of the document - how we get from A to B in a way that readers will understand.
