Well.... I disagree there.  RDFa DOES define a value for @profile.  We 
just didn't require its use for some reason that is lost to me at the 
moment.  Probably that someone objected that no one in the microformats 
community ever remembers to specify @profile, so why should we. 

As to disambiguation... yeah, I agree there.  I think you just need to 
define precedence rules and leave it to common sense.  That coupled with 
Sam's "SHOULD" text really ought to be sufficient.
