Benefit of custom FHIR profile usage

Hi folks,

I am working on a customer project which uses some slightly altered FHIR resources in comparison to default R4 patient resource. I am able to import the structuedefinition as a custom FHIR package and assign it to the ISC FHIR server and the endpoint the IRIS instance provides.

My question is - what is the benefit of using such a custom profil only defining some changes on a resources default definition (e.g. in field optionality)? From my understanding the ISC FHIR server does not validate resources it receives. Furthermore from the custom structure definition of the above mentioned FHIR patient resource no objects/classes or definitions are generated to be used later on.

best regards,
