Further to my comments above on the question of "Is there any thought of testing whether a profile is a valid profile? Meaning that it does not contradict the base.":

Testing the profile itself - any schemas it declares for instance - is possible in a system-specific way (e.g. using inference on an ontology) but more useful and easy is to test to see if instance data created conforming to the profile conforms to the base. This could be done by applying any of the base's validators to instance data. If the base is described using the Profiles Vocabulary, finding its validating resources would be straightforward.

This comment, and a summary of the discussion further above have been forwarded to the Issue raiser, Irene Polikoff, via the DXWG public mailing list.
