I am a little lost in the multiple things being considered here. 

Can I check this RDF as an assertion, based on Ruben's comment <https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/issues/74#issuecomment-396729390>:

```
:Dataset_X dcat:distribution :Distribution_Y .

:Distribution_Y 
    # a dimension, currently missing
    dct:conformsTo :Profile_Z ;  
   # another dimension, currently often catered for 
    dct:format <some_format> ; 
    # another example of a dimension
    # dct:language is indicated for Catalogue & Dataset only in DCAT1.0 but could be here due to no fixed DCT domain
    dct:language <http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/iso639-1/en> .
```
You could get Distribution_Y by asking for Dataset_X with a distribution conforming to Profile_Z.

Interpretation using ProfileDesc:

* no inference is drawn linking a `dcat:Distribution` to a `prof:ImplResourceDesc` due to no fixed DCT domains however usage makes them look related 
* the Profile referenced by the Distribution could be linked to validating tools via the `prof:resource` property, as per intended ProfileDesc use
```
:Profile_Z prof:resource :ImplResDesc_A ;
    dct:conformsTo <A_validation_standard> ;  
    dct:format <some_other_format> ; 
    prof:resourceRole rolesvoc:ConformanceTest .
```
