Re: [dxwg] What is the level of the inheritance link? (#857)

From the definition of `prof:isInheritedFrom`:

:isInheritedFrom rdf:type owl:ObjectProperty ;
               rdfs:domain :ResourceDescriptor ;
               rdfs:range :Profile ;
               skos:definition "This property indicates a Resource Descriptor described 
                                by this Profile’s base specification that is to be 
                                considered a Resource Descriptor for this Profile 
                                also"@en ;

This description may not have been fully present in PROF which this issue was first raised. 

The reference to *base specification* in the description above indicates that the 'level' may be any 'level' by which I mean path distance through a hierarchy of `prof:isProfileOf`. A profile's `ResourceDescriptor` instances can be inherited from anything (Profiles/Specifications) that this profile profiles directly or indirectly.

@aisaac does this explain the 'level' question adequately?
