Hierarchy in definition and "flattening" by composition during implementation is a very well known pattern implemented in many different platforms. There are multiple examples cited of hierarchies of profiles in the Use Cases.

We can postulate that some alternative "flat only" architecture might possibly work, but the onus is now on proponents of that to demonstrate a practical implementation is possible and preferably show where communities have successfully implemented a system where a sufficiently large number of profiles co-exist based entirely on "flat" redundant constraint specifications.  Anything less is more wishful thinking than evidence of need.
