Re: [dxwg] A profile can have multiple base specifications [ID37] (5.37) (#268)

@kcoyle. Point taken about the italics (or bold). My suggestion was precisely that if there's a (part of) sentence that suggests we're defining things in detail (and for the first time) here, then it should be moved elsewhere. So I'm going to be more explicit about my it. Here it is:

> A profile MAY be based on multiple specifications. For example, a profile MAY be based on several data models and vocabularies at the same time. In profiles using XML schema or RDF technology, using multiple base specifications generally means using elements from multiple namespaces.

If there needs to be discussion about the def of base specification and inclusion of vocabulary terms, then it needs to happen in a wider scoped issue. Again we've got #507 and others for this. Unless you want to use this issue as a hook for the general discussion and include whatever was discussed in #507 and others? In this case then we need to consider that the use case may not be so general. It was the Europeana one. It could be ok, but when I wrote this requirement I certainly did not think the idea was to define what profiling is.
