== Comments on "inheritance" ==
From the ShEx community:

We were unsure what to make of "inheritance", as we are not aware of any generalized notion of inheritance that would make sense across implementation technologies. It would be helpful to motivate this with a testable use case, e.g., a server implementation which responds to Accept-Profile by calculating the "best" response for processing a Profile Ontology description. A test of inheritance would include the notion that inheriting imposes further constraints, and that the entity being inherited from may in turn inherit from something else. ShEx shape inheritance has this behavior.
