Right, since that is how @profile is used already in HTML and XHTML.

With respect it's a very bad argument. :) It overloads @profile to
mean something different to what it means in HTML and XHTML. I would
think that the XHTML 2 Working Group would have something to say on

And my point is that given that we have a URL that 'works' in a way
that is consistent with @profile, why not use it.

It's an important one though, because it is is a reflection of our
attitude to XHTML; are we building on top of it, or are we changing
whatever we feel like changing?

Well...it will be exactly that...that the 'base URI' that is used to
kick off processing will NOT contain a fragment identifier.
