To quibble, HTML4 suggests that future versions of HTML may allow multiple profiles and that processors should take note of that. Since draft-nottingham-http-link-header-06 seems to be based on this HTML4-reality it would be wise not to give advice that assumes there will only ever be one profile. Especially since e.g. the microformats community advocates using several:

(Not that everyone in the microformats community actually uses them in practice, but then HTML4 is also pretty much fiction in practice (speaking as UA representative here).)
