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

== What is the level of the inheritance link? ==
This is a spin-off from #642
The example provided there uses the property prof:inheritedFrom between a Resource Descriptor and a Profile.
As @kcoyle noted, all of the requirements related to inheritance all speak of profile inheritance. From the draft profiles guidance document:
"2..4 Profile inheritance [RPFINHER]
Profiles may add to or specialise clauses from one or more base specifications. Such profiles inherit all the constraints from base specifications."
In addition we have this, which I think may also refer to resources rather than profiles:
"2.3 Profile of profiles [RPFPP]
One can create a profile of profiles, with elements potentially inherited on several levels."

We've talked a lot about 'profile inheritance' and that prof:isInheritedFrom is about something slightly different (maybe a "consequence" of profile inheritance, but for the resources that embody these profiles).
