"making Profile a subclass os dct:Standard means its substituable as the range of any dct:conformsTo predicate." - dct:conformsTo was intended to describe conformance to standards, not conformance to anything. Profile should not be declared a subclass of dct:Standard because one wants to use dct:conformsTo - it should only be declared a subclass of dct:Standard if it meets the definition of a standard. I agree with the statement by @agreiner in #792 that not all creators will consider all of their profiles to be standards, and defining profile this way narrows the usability of PROF. It is better to use a minimum semantic commitment and allow users of the vocabulary to add type declaration where they wish.
