    data profile 

        A data specification, with human- and/or
        machine-processable representations, that defines
        the content and structure of data used in a given
        context, often by constraining, extending, or
        annotating other data specifications.
        
    data specification

        A specification, with human- and/or
        machine-processable representations, that
        provides vocabularies or guidelines for
        describing data.

This proposal, based on [earlier proposals](https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/issues/963#issuecomment-506650168), as presented [on the public-dxwg-wg list]( https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-dxwg-wg/2019Jun/0144.html), tries to retain features that were upvoted by Lars, Riccardo, Peter, and Karen, while addressing several issues:
* As per [@aisaac observations about "data profiling" and JSON-LD](https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-dxwg-wg/2019Jul/0057.html), makes it optional for a data profile to be based on another data specification.
* Follows [@aisaac's use of "specification"](https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-dxwg-wg/2019Jun/0051.html) and avoids "document".
