CC/PP has minimal reason-able semantics built-in -- in its current form, 
interpretation depends on the content provider knowing about the particular 
attributes used.

I view that application of DAML is a possible future direction for more 
generic reasoning about CC/PP profiles (probably in conjunction with 
profile extensions).
