@tombaker 's "A well-designed data profile provides information useful for describing data in a
given context without semantically contradicting the data specifications on which it is based." would be a great statement to make in the guidance document. Since this is a definition, not a prescription, I always ask the question: if this isn't true about this instance, does that make it "not a profile"? I think that there should be a difference between a sub-optimal profile and a non-profile. Profiles SHOULD NOT be inconsistent with any vocbulary terms they reuse, but if they do, they are still profiles, just not ones that we would recommend as being "the best".
