@larsgsvensson I don't think I would limit it necessarily to software, but to any automated process. So in a sense my answer is "yes" but I might also include formal algorithms that could be implemented in more than one software solution. Could we use another term? "automated function?" "formal process?" To illustrate, I've written algorithms for de-duplicating files that can have more than one metadata record for the same cataloged resource. The same algorithm was used by more than one piece of software. I would consider the logical algorithm to be something that defines a set of rules regardless of the software that implements it. Bibliographic records that I have worked with were not "profiled" to address that algorithm; the algorithm had to work with metadata that was not aware of the needs of the algorithm.

I think, though, that I've arrived at the "splitting hairs" point and this is beyond anything we need to decide for the profiles guidance document.
