I guess thie biggest impact of adopting ADMS for cataloguing profiles is the axiomitisation that a profile is a sort of Dataset, hence we would not need to create a superclass of dcat:Distribution, but merely to align with  prof:ImplResourceDesc rdfs:subClassOf  dcat:Distribution,  

This doesnt negate the argument for a "Representation" superclass for clarity, but its a separate issue (i.e it shows profileDesc can complement ADMS and provide an interoperable way of describing key aspects of profiles within an ADMS conformant environment.)

(PS - we can easily tweak ProfileDesc to mode closely and formally align with defined ADMS roles - but prov:wasDerivedFrom is not expressive enough in itself to describe constraint conformance  mandated by the relationship, so we need some vocabulary somewhere to do this for us.
