'Default' doesn't give you any indication as to WHY.  Nor does it make it clear
that it is a profile.

I would suggest something along the lines of 'robust profile for HTML'... to
draw an association with the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robustness_principle

The current HTML5 core specification prioritizes implementor concerns over
authoring concerns and defines a robust parsing algorithm for compensating for
imperfect documents.  This profile complements that specification by defining a
robust profile for documents which compensates for imperfect parsers.
