@agreiner - indeed, we may need to work on this rule a bit. If there is more than one dependency (parent) and they address different aspects of the overall problem (e.g. by combining PROV-O and DCAT) then what does it mean to say that an instance of the profile is a valid instance of *both* parents? Under RDF OWA there is less difficulty, as you can always add information not anticipated in a vocabulary. But an individual that conforms to a SHACL or ShEx script that mentions elements from both parents might not conform to validation scripts that test conformance to each parent separately. And that's just in the RDF world. @rob-metalinkage points out that other issues arise on other platforms. 

These are all reasonable requirements and reasonable technologies, so we I'm pretty sure we can accommodate this with just a little care. But we will also need to be reasonable about it and, while not ignoring the corner cases, make sure that the common cases drive our thinking.
