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

My intention always was that the requirements are that "a profile MUST have a URI" and that "the URI identifying the profile SHOULD be an http URI so that you can look up more information about it".

I see no reason that there can be (at least) two kind of profile-aware servers

1. Those that are hard-coded to work with a specific (set of) profile(s) and
2. Those that can actually look up a profile, evaluate the constraints and then see if it can tweak the data in order to match the requirements set in the profile.

This would be similar to schema-aware XML-processors that can also be hard-coded ("specialized to one or a fixed set of pre-determined schemas") or general-purpose ("those not specialized to one or a fixed set of pre-determined schemas"); cf. [XML-Schema 1.1 ยง4.3.2](https://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema11-1/#schema-loc).
I guess that profile-aware servers will be of the first kind, at least in the beginning.
