Just a complementary list of citations on the topic:
"The primary role of a profile is to define a subset of features that
provides a minimal guarantee of interoperability" 
CSS-TV Profile 
http://www.w3.rg/TR/css-tv#section-conformance

"The increasing disparities between the capabilities of different kinds
of Web user agents present challenges to Web content developers wishing
to reach a wide audience. A promising approach is to formally describe
profiles for documents intended for broad groups of user agents, for
instance, separate document profiles for user agents running on
desktops, television, handhelds, cellphones and voice user agents.
Document profiles provide a basis for interoperability guarantees. If an
author develops content for a given profile and a user agent supports
the profile then the author may be confident that the document will be
rendered as expected."
