  I like the idea of taking inspiration/reusing `voaf:reliesOn`.

As noted by [Lars's  mail](https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-dxwg-wg/2018May/0234.html),   `voaf:reliesOn` is between  `voaf:Vocabulary` which is a subclass of 'void:Dataset', so it is quite RDF centric. Shall we generalize this property to support  other kinds of vocabularies/profile/whatever.

@nicholascar:  How to generalize `voaf:reliesOn`  seems to be closely related to the Alignment between profileDesc and VOAF ([issue 235](https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/issues/235))

 I would suggest to consider the  `voaf:reliesOn` sub-properties as a starting point for further candidate specialized relations.  For example, quoting 

>- `voaf:usedBy`:  Indicates that the subject vocabulary is used by the object vocabulary
>- `voaf:extends`: Indicates that the subject vocabulary extends the expressivity of the object vocabulary by declaring subsumption relationships, using object vocabulary class as domain or range of a subject vocabulary property, defining local restrictions etc ...
>- `voaf:specializes`: Indicates that the subject vocabulary defines some subclasses or subproperties of the object vocabulary, or local restrictions on those
>- `voaf:generalizes`: Indicates that the subject vocabulary generalizes by some superclasses or super properties the object vocabulary.

 I guess it is worth to take a look and align to such sub-properties, also to avoid reinventing relations that are somehow already identified in the linked data community.
