Re: ID48 - Relationship of profile to validation

Hi Rob,

> All a profile needs formally is an identifier - with the semantics of comparability.

I agree, but may I suggest a slightly more specific definition for our purposes?

Given the context we operate in, it might be good to agree that
a profile needs an IRI as identifier (with comparability semantics),
and, whenever possible, this IRI should be an HTTP URL.

That way, the identifier of a profile can be dereferenced,
which allows a server to further detail that profile,
for instance, through SHACL, HTML,
or even a standard that is yet to be created.

Best regards,
