@makxdekkers - excellent point : "So the relationship between an extension of DCAT-AP and DCAT-AP would need to be a stricter sub-property of prof:isProfileOf." 

This is essentially correct and natural and the implications are:

1) to have a stricter sub-property we would still need the existing super-property that handles all possible notions of conformance and supports the transitivity needed for conneg and data descriptions.
2) a sub-property could be defined to carry the additional ontological commitment for a specific notion of conformance. 
3) we are not in a position to define these sub-properties yet as we have not been engaged in a systematic evidence capture and modelling of notions of conformance.

so I would slightly reinterpret that statement this way:
"the relationship between an extension of DCAT-AP and DCAT-AP would need to be a stricter sub-property of prof:isProfileOf to convey the specific meaning of conformance according to DCAT-AP extension rules, but can be validly described with isProfileOf to indicate that such a relationship exists and conformance to DCAT-AP is required."
