kcoyle has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/dxwg:

== Are PROF roles misplaced in resourceDescription? ==
If the PROF resourceDescription is analogous to the DCAT distribution, it is a description of a physical resource, essentially a file. The PROF role is the relationship between a profile and a resource. It is not the nature of the resource, and the resource can have different roles in association with different profiles. I can only think to illustrate this with a (crude) diagram:
![roles](https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/1564129/53029644-338c3280-341e-11e9-9d1e-a7caca119364.png)
Also note that with inheritance of resourceDescriptions, that inheritance implicitly includes the role, which may not be appropriate.

Among the possible solutions are:
1. make role a property that links the profile to the resource
1. ?? (I can only think of that one; surely there are others)
