wow this discussion really goes into too many aspects: using "constraints" or not, "being based on something" or not, being a "set" or not...
Maybe we should split and identify the different facets of the issue? ('m pessimistic about it, as every attempt to do this seems to lump again everything together. But maybe we can try...)

On these different aspects:
- group/list/collection works fine for me. Whatever gives the sense that profile can specific several things.
- constrains may be removed but I still would like something that expresses that profile seek to control how data is. Even when I annotate or create an extension of something, it is with the idea of having some form of control, otherwise it's pointless. To me the word "constraint" captures this (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/constraint) but if you want another word I won't have an objection as long as it sends the same sort of message.
- on "based on something" or not, maybe we should have two different definitions (one subsuming the other) as hinted at https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-dxwg-wg/2019Jul/0057.html
