Some thoughts (labelled JR):

JR: First, the supporting definitions aren't very helpful...

style profile: An identifiable collection of style rules is a style profile.
JR: What does identifiable mean? At a URI? If this is meant to mean stylesheets (either directly or via some UI abstraction) lets put that in.

style rule: An assignment of presentation properties to a style profile is a style rule.
JR: Why refer back to style profile (creating a circularity)? Isn't it just a statement that a certain part of the content will be presented with a certain style (whether visual, sonic or haptic)?

> 1.7.1 Support User Style Profiles:  User agents that support a mechanism for authors to supply style profiles shall also provide an equally effective mechanism for users to supply profiles. (Level A)

JR: Not sure what is meant by "equally effective". If we think users should have the same level of style control as authors, eg. down to styling by ID etc. then we really do just mean stylesheets and we should return to the original wording..

> 1.7.2 Apply User Style Profiles: The user can turn on the use of user style profiles and for every user style profile defined, the user can choose whether or not it should be applied to: (Level A)
    (a) the current page, or
    (b) all pages on specified web sites, or
    (c) all pages.

JR: Could this be AA?

> 1.7.3 Author Style Sheets: The user can turn off the use of author style profiles, and for every author style sheet defined the user can choose whether or not it should be applied to: (Level A)
    (a) the current page, or
    (b) all pages for which it is defined.

JR: We mix style profile and style sheet in this SC. So there needs to be a UI where all the stylesheets can be toggled?

> 1.7.4 Save copies of style profiles: The user can save copies of the style profiles referenced by the current page, so that they can edit and load them as user style profiles. (Level AA)

JR: So the ability to capture style sheets so they can tweek them as the basis for their own styling?
