I haven't added that, as it's no clear what problem it solves.

I haven't added that, as I don't understand the point (profile="" has clearly
demonstrated that authors don't like or use profiles).

I haven't done this, as profile="" has been demonstrated to be pointless for
authors, and therefore encouraging authors to use it is a bad idea.

If you disagree with these decisions, please escalate this to the issue
