When I wrote "keep the BLD document complete with all that is already 
specified", I meant, "keep the document complete...", not BLD the 
dialect; sorry for the confusion.

The idea is to keep everything in a single document, and then define 
Core and one or more flavour of "BLD" as subsets of what is specified in 
the document (e.g. a dialect that contains no named argument Uniterms 
nor classification and that we could call BLD; another that contains 
everything specified in the document and that we could call BLD++)..

My understanding was that this would satisfying your sense of a profile, 
without the indirection problem that could complicate extensions (and it 
also seem that we have very different things in mind when we say 
extensions, but that is another subject).
