One way to improve the usability and deployment of
	<head profile="http://example.org/path/a/profile">
would be for an authoring tool to download the associated profile  
information to show the author the possible values.

Would it be possible/sensible to include these in Dreamweaver? in  
which timescale?



Examples of profiles are:

* XFN 1.1
   http://www.gmpg.org/xfn/11

* Favicon, foaf, nofollow (work in progress)
   http://www.w3.org/2005/10/profile

* Site Summaries in XHTML
   http://www.w3.org/2000/08/w3c-synd/#

* A long [list of Profile URIs][1]
