@makxdekkers the example you cite is rather informative - but it supports the view in the profiles vocabulary rather than any suggestion that we need some weaker notion of "compatibility" to handle DCAT-AP profiles.

 " Extensions must not widen but may only narrow down the usage notes as specified in DCAT-AP v1.1, so that all information provided according to the extension remains valid for DCAT-AP v1.1"

and if you wanted to argue about "thats for extensions not profiles" it makes it clear it regards these as the same in the rationale: 

 "The proposed rules are intended to allow an extension profile to satisfy local or domain-specific requirements while preserving interoperability in a wider European and cross-domain environment,"

this neatly joins the dots in the proposed Profiles design that its notion of compatibility via conformance is a requirement for interoperable data exchange.
