Is Pattern: 
no
Definition: 

Describes the subset of valid DDI objects used by an agency for a specified purpose. This may be the required and supported objects for a specific system, a profile for deposit in an archive, requirements at different points of production, etc. In addition to the standard name, label, and description the DDI Profile describes the intended application of the profile, its purpose, the version of XPath used in describing the supported objects, the DDI namespace (major and minor version numbers), a mapping of schema to prefixes (if different from the standard DDI model), a set of instructions for use of the profile, and a listing of used and unsupported objects. These objects may be constrained (i.e., change from optional to required), provided a fixed value, or provided a local name.

ddiProfileName
0..n
A name for the profile. May be expressed in multiple languages. Repeat the element to express names with different content, for example different names for different systems.

A display label for the profile. May be expressed in multiple languages. Repeat for labels with different content, for example, labels with differing length limitations.
description
0..1
A description of the content and purpose of the profile. May be expressed in multiple languages and supports the use of structured content.
applicationOfProfile
0..n
A brief description of the intended applications of the profile. Supports the use of an external controlled vocabulary.
purpose
0..1
Purpose describes the purpose of creating the profile such as describing the coverage of a distribution software system.
xPathVersion
0..1
Provides the version of XPath used. Values are 1.0, 2.0 at this time.
ddiNamespace
0..1
Provides the version of DDI schemas used. Values are 2.5, 3.0, 3.1, etc. Note that only the Major.Minor portion of the version number is used.
xmlPrefixMap
0..n
If you are not using the standard DDI prefix or the full DDI name then provide mapping. For each XML namespace used in the profile's XPath expressions, the XML namespaces must have their prefix specified using this element.
instructions
