I get the general concept of authoritative (I work in a Federal government after all!).

The Geoscience Australia profile, of ISO19115-1, certainly has an authoritative resource: it's the PDF that is taken as absolute. Other resources like schematron validators, XSD schema & vocabs (code lists) exist too but they are subservient to the PDF.

So, a stab at a way forward: 

* in Guidance we say something about a task for profile designers being to indicate which, of the potentially many resources in their profile, is authoritative
* then in the ontology we can create a new Role to indicate an authoritative resource with wording that aligns with Guidance
  This could simple be a new role called AuthoritativeSpecification or similar, if you expect Specification to invite multiple use

We could, although this might be difficult, specify in the ontology that if AuthoritativeSpecification is used, it can only be used once for a Profile thus avoiding intra-resource relationships if we want to avoid such things.
