If you wanted to use a file already used for Profile A with Role X but now for Profile B woth Role Y then yes, you would “require a new description”. The use, and thus the association of that file to a profile is different.

If you wanted to use a file for Profile A with Role X for Profile B with Role X.... ta da, that’s what <code>isInheritedFrom</code> is for!
