I think your confusion lies in your belief that only one "level" of 
profiles is possible...  That's not what the text is meant to believe.  
Profiles can reference other profiles, and those profiles could 
reference still other profiles.  That's fine.  The point of this clause 
is that only the triples from the RDFa Profiles referenced from the 
document being processed effect *that* document.  If there are profiles 
referenced in an RDFa Profile document that is being parsed, those 
profiles would effect *that* document, etc.

Hope this helps.
