Hi Tim,

My personal opinion on it.

> CSS Print Profile , CSS Mobile Profile 1.0, CSS TV Profile 1.0

They are profiles but not Umbrella specifications in my understanding 
of it. An Umbrella specification would be a "CSS 3.0" document which 
ties everything together, explaining the intent of the technology as a 
whole, what are the dependencies, what are the different profiles (with 
the possibility of new profiles and how to create them, with which 
constraints), etc, and  to define the conformance or to explain how the 
conformance works in the different documents.
