Hmm. Not sure why "mandatory" requirements are given special consideration. There are often a lot of non-mandatory aspects to a profile but that still make use of constraints and get validation. It is perhaps an extreme case, but the main library data schema has about 1400 data elements of which one is mandatory. Emphasis on mandatory is not relevant to that set of data.

I agree with Tom that this idea that there are "things" within a profile that are considered the profile is a non-starter. Also, the use of "requirements" and "recommendations" has not come up before  so I don't know where that comes from in terms of our prior work. I think this approach should be dropped as it has no basis in our work.
