"Resolves the debate about whether to force properties of distributions to be attached to the accessURL or allowed in the cataloged component (e.g. dct:format)"

Please say more about this, because I do not see how this "resolves the debate." What about this would change the validity of the use of dct:format for a catalog record rather than a digital file?

A disadvantage that I would add is that this could render PROF less visible outside of the DCAT community. They are many communities creating profiles that do not use (or even know of) DCAT. That's fine if we want PROF to be a profiles vocabulary that is primarily in support of DCAT, but it does change the intended audience. It also means that we will need to change how or whether we address it in the profiles guidance document, since that will not be directly related to DCAT. (I don't know if it has any affect on the conneg deliverable.) This is a change that affects more than one deliverable, which means that we need to take a macro view of the effect.

An advantage to having PROF be specific to DCAT is that in a sense makes the work simpler because then there is no need to elicit and satisfy comments from other communities. It has a narrower audience, and one that we have already engaged with. From a process point of view, if the DCAT community is satisfied with it, we don't need to go further in terms of community review.
