I was just thinking out loud while trying to understand how to read the diagram. Now that I got used to it more, it does not look that surprising to me. Once I got over my initial confusion and realized that the nested sets should be interpreted as "in addition to the containing superset", it all started to make perfect sense to me.

Nor do I now.

Yes, again I was just... somewhere else.

One more thing, still: What about a set for XInclude support? Right now, the Full Profile and External Declarations Profile seem indistinguishable in the diagram, but they are not.
