In last weeks telecon we talked a little about the use of the term
"Fragments" and the chair said we should continue off-line.

I propose we stick with "profile", as per the QA Working Group [1]:

     A profile is a subset of the technology that supports a particular
     functional objective....

     Profiles can be based on hardware considerations associated with
     target product classes -- for example, SVG Tiny is aimed at mobile
     phones -- or they may be driven by other functional requirements of
     their target constituencies -- for example, a graphical profile
     tailored for technical illustrations in aircraft maintenance

and Wikipedia [2]:

     an agreed-upon subset and interpretation of a specification.

Not exciting, and jargon (like "fragments" is), but hey...
