@dret Thanks for your feedback. So would it solve this issue if we added some text to [§5 Related Work](https://w3c.github.io/dxwg/conneg-by-ap/#relatedwork) of the Conneg by AP guidance document?

My proposal would be:
RFC 6906 defines the "profile" relation type for Link headers (RFC 8288). The profile relation allows source representations to indicate that they are following one or more profiles. The definition of a profile in [RFC 6906 §3](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6906#section-3) is very similar to the one used here and also uses URIs for profile identification. 
The use of a `Link: rel="profile" <URI>` header has a functions similar to the target attribute for the Link header suggested in [§ of the conneg-by-ap doc](https://w3c.github.io/dxwg/conneg-by-ap/#listprofilehttplink). The difference is that the use of `rel="profile"` links the source document directly to the profile(s) it follows (the target URI in the Link header is the URI of the profile), whereas the "profile" _attribute_ in a Link header specifies the profile of the source document itself (when using `rel="self"`) or an alternative representation of the source document (when using `rel="alternate"`).
