RDF is comprised of:

1. Model - model theory etc. ;
2. Syntax -- subject->predicate->object triples ;
3. Syntax Notations -- Turtle, RDF/XML, and others ;
4. Serialization Formats -- Turtle, RDF/XML and others.

The breakdown above should clarify what Henry means when he speaks of 
separating model from syntax. Thus, I think your point is about using 
profiles to loosely couple items #2-4 with item #1 .
