It is not this task that makes it difficult but the context that has to 
be provided. A profile is a collection of features and extension. An how 
you structure this features have some semantic meaning. I think that the 
use of this mechanism is not consistent through the (current) TTML 
profiles. If you say that you can have a profile document that says 
"here is my label and what is required to conform is written in the 
corresponding specs" that this may work. But I assume that you have to 
list features and extension (?).
