The intent of dct:conformsTo has to do with "established standards". The full definition is:

"An established standard to which the described resource conforms."

This is where you can say that your resource conforms to ISO 2709 or Oasis-Open "legaldocml-akomantoso". An internal document or application, such as a SHACL file, doesn't really fit this definition. The profiles vocabulary may be better suited to this. I don't see PROF as a substitute for this DC term, but a statement with a different meaning.
