I simple, maybe stupid question. What can be expressed by 'Dependency'
when creating a new profile? Do you have an example? I didn't find
anything in the UML-specification from the OMG.

I don't see how dependencies could be used in a profile (at least in any
way different than you would in a normal model), unless your profile
should extend the standard Dependency metaclass with a stereotype.

Personally, I find the Dependency metaclass too general to be of any
utility. It is more interesting in its more specialized versions, such
as InterfaceRealization, Usage or Deployment.
