mixing up concerns here.  Profiles do not conform to other profiles, they specialise (constrain) them in a compatible fashion. We need to keep the concept of a resource and what it conforms to separate.

conformsTo is a relation indicating an arbitrary resource conforms to a standard, (which may be a profile of anther standard)
profileOf is a relation saying that one standard relates to another.  

... noting we are still fully compliant with the DC view - there is no formal definition of "considered" to worry about - this is up to the implementers to choose whatever governance regime they want and what specifications they choose to accept as conformance requirements.

There is no change to the model indicated - so please just go back to the issue of getting the definitions as good as we can to minimise red herrings.
