Yes, but only because metadata profiles defined by profile="" affect
the *link types* not the <meta name=""> attributes. In other words,
metadata profiles in XHTML affect the content of the "rel" and "rev"
attributes.

Problem is, the HTML spec. only defines the first URI as being
"significant" (whatever that is), and there are no standards for
creating metadata profiles. Having said that, I still think it might
be useful in the short term to create a metadata profile and bung it
up at http://www.w3.org/2001/04/meta/ for demonstration purposes, and
to standardize all of the current instances of rel="meta"
implementations. Any W3T members out there listening? DanBri? Chaals?

It'd also be nice to use this link type in conjuction with a MIME
type. Until then, then profile should identify the object of "meta" as
being XML RDF.
