Re: [dxwg] A mechanism must be available to identify conformance to each inherited profile given conformance to a profile that specialises it (6.1)

Rob, I don't actually see how profileDesc fulfills these requirements, and I think there is at least one requirement fulfilled by profleDesc that I don't see here.

For the latter, the main function that profileDesc fulfills is to connect the dataset itself to resources related to it, primarily any application profiles (in any form or serialization), documentation, validation, etc.

For the existing requirements, AFAIK profileDesc does not determine the content of the application profile, so does not define validation rules, documentation, profile vocabulary, etc. These are aspects of the profile itself and from what we discussed at the F2F the profile is a black box to profileDesc. If that's not how you see it then we need to take up that discussion again, perhaps in plenary.
