I dont see it too hard to use such terms based on cardinality constraints - but what you are doing has two aspects: 
1 formalising constraints
2 recommending specific language to explain constraints

probably best not to confuse these.

The actual guidance could be something along the lines of 
1) where applicable fully or partially describe profiles with a formal constraint language appropriate to the specification being profiled, for example use SHACL or SHEX  to constrain RDF vocabularies.
2) Offer some formalism for constraints not expressible via standard languages (unless DXWG wants to spin up a micro-ontology to support those we identify - such as "mandatory when" )
3) Provide human readable documentation of the constraints defined by the profile using the following language....
