Hi David,

I'm in the process of recreating the figure for organization of 
Conformance Models
I think I start to understand your point of view. I can draw multiple 
diagram I'm using a tool which makes it easier. :)

For now I have just redraw a graph which is very similar to the first 
one but I will improve it.

And I think that would be easier to look at this with specific examples.

		   Modules   Profiles  Levels
CSS 3        X          X
SMIL         X
XHTML Mod    X
SVG                     X
WCAG                             X

I have tried to draw things to explain.

Look at the new graphic, does it cover a bit more your case?

Profile X =  Core
			+ Level 1 (Mod A + Mod B)
			+ Level 2 (Mod C + Mod D)
Profile Z =  Core
			+ Level 1 (Mod A + Mod B)
			+ Mod E (optional with regards to levels)
