"Profiles do not conform to other profiles, they specialise (constrain) them in a compatible fashion. We need to keep the concept of a resource and what it conforms to separate."

First, we need group agreement on that. But I also think that "profileOf" is not going to mean "constraints" to most potential users of the vocabulary. If it is specific to constraints then it might be best to have that in the property name. Even "prof:constrains". 

Nick, if there isn't agreement on what the properties mean you can't hardly have agreement on how they should be worded. The fact that there isn't agreement on the meaning should be a big red flag in terms of publishing the vocabulary. There has to be group consensus on these meanings, and also on the functionality that we expect the vocabulary to support. It looks like we aren't there.
