@kcoyle "two profiles that are profiles of BIBFRAME can be compatible with BIBFRAME but not compatible with each other." is not a contradiction to the axiom. 
This is a formal axiom that states "if A is a profile of B, and a dataset conforms to A, than this dataset should conform to B"
It can be contradicted if you can find any specifications A, B, such as A is a profile of B and there can be a dataset that conforms to A and not to B. No need to find more complex situations: just find an A and a B for which that holds. In my putative case, A is DPLA MAP and B is EDM.

@nicholascar interpreting prof:isProfileOf in a way narrower than what is hinted by the current definition of profiles would be cheating :-) Or well , one could try this, but then this one's duty should rather be to create a sub-property of prof:isProfileOf for which the axiom is true - leaving it open to use the unconstrained, more general property for other types of profiles.
