It's pretty funny that the only errata that the HTML WG are releasing are 
errata that contradict HTML5 proposals...

For the record, in the HTML5 proposal, profile="" takes multiple URIs, in 
order to allow the use of multiple profiles, something which is quite 
common in microformat circles. (Sadly, even more common in microformat 
circles is to not specify profile="" at all, but that's another story.)
