The way the GRDDL specification is (currently) written you can't mandate 
any of the options - it doesn't *require* the merging of all possible 
GRDDL results or any specific combination, it only defines each of the 
three as 'valid' GRDDL results.  This makes testing for compliance a bit 
more complicated (as we've seen with the multiple output test scenarios as 
of late) but leaves implementors with the ability to follow their 
own policies.

While on the subject, it seems that there is some ambiguity in whether or 
not profile GRDDL results are GRDDL results of the source documents that 
reference them

It led to some recent confusion in #swig:

<dajobe> see I get 136 triples for that, 'cos I import all of the profile document's triples into the main card.html doc.
<chimezie> the profile document's triples should be a GRDDL result of that URI, no?
* chimezie recalls some @@ indication about that in the spec
<chimezie> huh.. when did that change?
<dajobe> I'm not clear, I might have coded it wrong.
<chimezie> i dont think you did actually..
<chimezie> [[[
<chimezie> if an information resource ?D has an XHTML representation whose profile attribute refers to ?PROFILE, then any GRDDL result of ?PROFILE is a GRDDL result of ?D
<chimezie> ]]]
<chimezie> followed by:
<chimezie> @@no, profile results don't get merged in with ?D. and @@TODO: be more clear about multiple profiles.
... skip ...
<dajobe> so profile results are just scraped for ?x grddl:profileTransformation ?y triples, others are dropped
<chimezie> im just wondering what is the arch.. motivation for not including them as a result...
<chimezie> it seems to be the same for ns docs
<dajobe> they are mostly triples about different resources
