Basic issue-- communicate to a client application what rules they can assume will be followed in an instance document representing some resource; this allows a developer to write software to access information contained in the representation. 
Assumptions: 
1. there is some specification (spec1) that elucidates the rules followed by a given resource representation.
2. specification (spec1) can use rules from other specifications (specX). 
    a. If all rules from specX are part of spec1, but some rules are restricted in some way consistent with spec (specX), then spec1 is **PROFILEOF** specX. 
    b. If all specX rules are followed but not modified, then spec1 **INHERITSFROM** specX. 
    c. if Spec1 only uses some rules from specX (consistent with specX), then spec1 **USES** specX, and Spec1 must be clear about what it is using from specX and how.
