rob-metalinkage has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/dxwg:

== Content-Profile default behaviour not explicit for single profiles or single profile hierarchy  ==
The spec states 

"When a resource is returned that conforms to two or more profiles that are not within a profile hierarchy (i.e. none of the multiple profiles the resource conforms to is a profiles of another), the server MUST indicate all conforming profiles individually within the Content-Profile header as such:

Content-Profile: <PROFILE_1>, <PROFILE_2>"

but it hasnt stated explicitly that this applies to a single profile.  Also if the client asks for profile A and profile B is a profile of profile A, then returning profile B is a valid response.   If we generalise this to 

"the server MUST indicate all conforming profiles individually within the Content-Profile header"

then the requirement is to return A and B - - in the same hierarchy.
