For the sake of our mental health, now that @agreiner has identified the dichotomy, I would prefer not to address the issue of validating profiles. Or just say that we expect profile expressions/representations to conform to whatever format/language/best practices they're supposed to follow. 
First, we don't have a concrete requirement about it, I think. Second, it's quite obvious that a profile being itself a chunk of (meta)data or even (meta)(meta)data, since it's data it must adheres to whatever rule apply to the means of expression chosen for it (this would also apply to human-readable expressions of the profile of course). I believe that the validation of profiles is already covered by the general case of validation against profiles/standards.
