We discussed it at our f2f in Cannes in March:
http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/2004/02/xml-f2f-20040301-minutes.htm#profile
and came to no particular conclusions.

The following telcon, we discussed the new charter wording:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-xml-core-wg/2004JanMar/0220
but no mention was made of profiling.

By the next telcon, charter drafts were already being sent to W3M,
and profiling was only mentioned under "Other work" as you note above.

I was left under the impression the majority of the WG was not
interested
in working on this item and that the W3M and AC did not see it as
important
enough to charter us to provide a deliverable for it.

However, we are chartered to "investigate" in this area, so we could
renew discussion on it.  But I'd prefer to wait a couple weeks to get
XInclude and xml:id to their next stages.
