This was also noted in the ShEx community comments:

"The relation of standard to profile also seems unclear in practice.  Some people consider a specification to be a "standard" when published by a "standards" body such as ISO but not if published by, say, W3C or DCMI.  And yet, because the domain of `prof:hasProfile` is `dct:Standard`, one could infer that any profile profiled by another profile is, ipso facto, also a standard.  Should a vocabulary I just invented for this profile be considered a "standard" with respect to the profile?  Given the diversity of opinions and perspectives on the distinction in natural language, we would expect diverse interpretations of its use in the Profile Ontology as well."
