Question on OWL-S 1.1

This question concerns the Process and Profile elements of the overall
service description, and how elements of Process are intended to relate to
elements of Profile.

With regard to the service profile functionality description -- 
  There are no classes for modeling IOPEs -- so an instance of Profile.owl
must use the schema provided by Process.owl

Of course, when describing a instance of Process.owl, there is support for
Output, Result, etc. 

Typically, are the descriptions of IOPE elements in Process.owl for a
particular service echoed in the Profile.owl ? (Do they match?)

Or is the description given in (an instance of) Profile.owl -- which must
use elements of the process schema -- generally regarded as being 'higher
level' ?  If so, then the IOPE elements in the Process and a Profile for a
given service are not meant to be closely related.

What was the intent?

I am currently using OWL-S1.1 in a non-standard (ie, not a Web service)
application (with Protégé editor), and I would greatly appreciate some input
on the overall issue.

Best regards,
