As an FYI, the Dublin Core approach to vocabularies (ontologies) vs. profiles is that a vocabulary should be defined with a minimum semantic commitment, and that vocabulary usage (cardinality, value ranges, etc.) is the role of the profile. The upshot of this (and I believe this is compatible with RDF) is that for most uses a vocabulary alone will not be sufficient. So a vocabulary becomes a kind of building block, but the profile turns it into a usable structure. You can then design your vocabulary for maximum reuse.
