No, this is not what I was proposing.
Different industry group may start (are) working on HTML5 based  
specification. I believe that all these different groups will encounter  
similar problems down the road, ending up with specification that have a  
lot in common.

My proposal is to work together here on these common parts, so that such  
result can be reused by such vertical groups to make their vertical spec.

The spec I envision is still a vertical spec, probably not complete enough  
to be used as is but close to that.

I agree,that is why I propose a meta-profile that can be re-used by  
different organization for their work.
