The choices listed there are:

a. 1 doc: (vocab, extensions, semantics) with profiles
b. n docs: 1 vocab, 1+ for extensions, semantics

I have the impression that folks wanted the core semantics, with or
without SPARQL, separated from the templates and SPARQL extensions:

c. SHACL shall be made of multiple documents: one document which only
   defines the higher-level language constructs (provides semantics),
   and other documents which define the rest: templates and extension

As W3C Staff, this would be my preferred approach as it allows core to
proceed to REC without dependencies on (i.e. multiple interoperable
implementations of) templates and SPARQL integration.
