@agreiner please refer to the multiple Use Cases that clearly identify that profiles are transitively hierarchical (they inherit all constraints of base profiles).  So provide a way to "flatten" these things out so that clients do not need to walk the hierarchy if a server is willing to do the work to flatten them out. 

or look at the SKOS spec, and the way skos:broaderTransitive is defined - and may be entailed from skos:broader (or provided entailed in the resource at the server's discretion)

fair enough to think about best practices for entailment (and avoiding run-time entailment) but the rationale is clear enough, and the requirements have been discussed multiple times and agreed, so now we need to focus on a solution, not re-opening the debate.
