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

Getting back to the original comment - the ResourceDescriptor has a property dct:conformsTo which relates to the resource (artefact) - i.e. the ResourceDescriptor is an identifiable metadata carrier for the artefact - the same way dcat:Dataset is a metadata carrier for the actual data. 

Back to the original issue title - profInheritedFrom is a convenience for "flat" versions of profiles - alternatively the requirement would be that the full profile description of every ancestor is bundled in a profile definition, and clients are willing and able to traverse the full hierarchy. This was in response to a request from @agreiner to support this option, which seems reasonable.

NB profInheritedFrom also allows a system to filter and bundle only the things a client needs - but at this stage I dont have any examples of this in the wild .
