@agreiner Annette responded to Antoine's thoughts with an [email](https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-dxwg-wg/2019Jun/0110.html) that states that 

"Profiling is about acknowledging a reuse. The threshold at which that 
acknowledgment is called for would be hard to define, but it seems to me 
that it is up to the creator of the spec or profile what level of 
acknowledgment they want to advertise. For example, I don't think that 
DCAT becomes a profile of vCard by including vCard elements. And I don't 
think we would want to advertise it as such, because we don't have the 
goal of creating a version of vCard that suits the needs of a specific 
community. I think it comes down to the intent."
