kcoyle has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/dxwg:

== SHACL: clarification of "partially" and ConformanceTest ==
Section 3.3 of the document says:

"A profile may be (partially) "implemented" by "schemas" (in OWL, SHACL, XML Schema...) that allow different levels of data validation"

Further, section 4.4 says:

"A profile should have human-readable documentation that expresses for humans the main components of a profile, which can also be available as machine-readable resources (ontology or schema files, SHACL files, etc). This includes listing of elements in the profile, instructions and recommendations on how to use them, constraints that determine what data is valid according to the profile, etc."

What is the difference between 3.3 and 4.4? Do they say the same thing or is there some difference?

What does “partially” mean? What part of a profile could be implemented by schemas and what part could not be implemented by schemas? 

If a profile is implemented by a schema, then what is a difference between the profile implemented as a schema and a resource that plays the role of prof:ConformanceTest? Would this be one and the same?
