Sorry but this is just wrong. Dcat-ap imports dcat so ergo it is not flat.

I do agree that mechanisms to flatten are useful and implementations must
be allowed to choose these options. I think perhaps you need to develop a
specific use case around the provision of flattened packages (and there is
always a point at which you decide the client just needs to know something)
rather than trying to question the evidence for the existing practice of
defining profiles in hierarchies.

A client that "knows" dcat might be able to use dcat-ap as a flat
profile... but whatabout geodcat-ap or dcat-ap-it.

Nothing stopping dcat-ap-it being acaikable as a flattened graph containing
all the dcat and dcterms axioms. These are distributions of the profile
itself.. so would be great to have this Use Case articulated.
