It would be nice if you actually provided a profile that people can use. 
I doubt that anybody who just wants to have a pretty picture in the 
address bar / bookmark menu will go off and learn the secret art of 
GRDDL (I mean, I'm a designer with a reasonable technical inclination, 
but that just made no sense to me at first glance).

Or have I got the above issue wrong, and you're suggesting that the 
profile in your sample code (http://www.w3.org/2005/11/profile) is the 
one that people should be using? If it's the latter, then this may need 
clarification.

Also possibly worth mentioning the "shortcut icon" rel attribute which 
many people wrongly use.
