@jakubklimek You wrote "_If there is a set of different APs, each with a different set of restrictions and specifics, those will not be interoperable. What is the point then?_".
People will *always* implement a standard in their own way, maybe because of their (mis)understanding or maybe because their situation is a little different. Documenting their assumptions and decisions in a profile makes it easier for people with a different set of assumptions and decisions to understand how to interoperate with them, maybe using mapping or conversion tools.
There should be a sweet spot: keeping the standard flexible where possible and strict where necessary.
