There is an optional profile parameter defined for application/xhtml+xml 
in RFC 3236.  Besides stating that it accepts a URI, it's currently not 
defined very well except to say that it's designed for content 
negotiation.  The example in the RFC uses the URI of the XHTML Basic 
DTD, although using the namespace URI, since it's different from XHTML 
1.x, might be a better alternative.
