agreiner has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/dxwg:

== Profile guidance definitions ==
The definitions in the profile guidance need some work.
 def of profile
"a particular function", together with the intro text's discussion of "any individual system", is too focused on a single application. If it were only to be used by a single system, there would be no need for profiles as any kind of shared spec.

def of specification
"an act of" is not the def we want. we use it to discuss a thing, not an act.

def of standard
again, wrong definition. What we are talking about is a published specification generally accepted as authoritative.
