Just a reminder that there is a difference
between "profile" in the generic sense,
and "DCAT profile" in the specific sense.

So there is no contradiction, as I was talking about generic profiles.

Also, not all profiles have to be "combinable",
so it is fine if DCAT profiles are not.

We should, I think. It follows from 5.3.
