Re: [dxwg] prof:inheritedFrom needs more convincing case and/or example (#642)

The last example above shows format and conformsTo being used on two different entities: the ResourceDescriptor (as per spec) and the artefact. I think only the latter makes sense: format and conformsTo are innate props of the artefact whereas ResourceDescriptor captures its relation to a profile.

Furthermore, I think a ResourceDescriptor may reasonably have several equivalent artefacts: eg the same Shacl served as turtle or rdf xml, for convenience.

Furthermore, the same artefact may list several formats, selectable through conneg.

So I think all these links and their cardinalities are not quite clear in the spec. As in another issue, the function of ResourceDescriptor should be crystal clear before we know where to put the links, and whether inheritedFrom is needed.
