Sorry Dan, could you please clarify how the event might end with the wrong
url - which transformation(s) are you applying here?

That sounds like it might be rather fragile. Are any of these relationships
inverse-functional?

But if @profiles are in place then won't this mean that GRDDL doesn't quite
work when it could/should? That would seem in scope. I don't think we should
go into specifics, but perhaps we can identify the kind of circumstances
that lead to (unexpected) incompleteness or misinterpretation.

Cheers,
Danny.
