I'm a bit confused about this exchange. To me the point about metadata in the last wording was about saying that the data created according to profiles can happen to be metadata for other data (just as there are profiles for the metadata in data catalogues). I didn't want to stress that statements in a profile are metadata (even though, yes, they are). I.e I wanted to raise the possibility of profiles-for-metadata, not profiles-as-metadata.
Maybe 'that apply to instance data or metadata' would render this better than 'that define instance data or metadata' would be clearer?

@larsgsvensson I don't understand your last comment: where do we say that "if something is a set of statements about data elements and has a unique name, then it's a profile"?
Note that in my view the re-wording here is only for the requirement title, as we were not happy with the current title. The impact on the definition remains to be handled, and 'negotiated' against other requirements and preoccupation.
