My actual proposal ended up not using URLs to fetch the data; instead, it
used the obvious facts that (1) The client knows it's UA profile and (2)
the server is reachable from the client (otherwise the whole thing is
pretty pointless).

The conclusion - if the server doesn't have the profile, the client should
send it. Makes even more sense with NG or interleaved Persistent
connections...
