Sounds to me as if we are happy with the nature of the beast - not the name - so the ugly name has served its short term goal and may now be honourably discharged.

"Implementation Resource Descriptor" is exactly but awkwardly semantically correct - the object is a descriptor of a resource that defines some aspect(s) of implementation of a profile.

If we are happy "schema" includes "guidance notes" then i guess it works - although it feels a bit weird. And note the range is not a schema, its a descriptor that qualifies a reference to the actual schema. prof:resource might be better or even prof:constraints  - as the resource must specify constraints.

"aspect" may be better.
