The original question of this Issue's been addressed, as @larsgsvensson says: the IETF document will contain text to register the target attribute profile for the Link header as follows:

> When used in a Link header field, the "profile" attribute is a hint indicating which profile the resource representation retrieved by dereferencing the link conforms to. Note that this is only a hint; for example it does not override the "Content-Profile" header field of a HTTP response obtained by actually following the link. Multiple "profile" attributes on a single link value indicate that the resource representation conforms to multiple profiles.

Also, as @RubenVerborgh notes: with the merge of #1063, the token mechanism now no longer interferes with anything else.

This Issue's now been marked due-for-closing for quite some time and discussion here seems to have petered out. Any further discussion should be taken up in a new issue.
