Who are "we" ?
Are content providers involved ?
This leads me to think there are two sides of the vocabulary debate : 
    Some want to describe everything...and more ;-)...
    and some just want to get a fixed part of it in order to adapt content.
It makes me feel like the Working Group has within a single point of view for the CC/PP (mainly chartered by manufacturers)...
"A CC/PP profile is a description of device capabilities and user preferences that can be used to guide the adaptation of content presented to that device." but are there some content providers in the CC/PP Working Group ?
To come back to the vocabulary, as soon as a basic vocabulary is provided (i.e. which can be used to adapt content), extensions won't affect the content providers, will they ?
This is a general feel I have and I hope someone could clarify my "misty mind" :-)
