@azaroth42  We could nail everything down to very specific profiles - but in general it would be better to profile the content - what it contains - and negotiate the most convenient representation - encoding, language, CRS, version, precision etc - otherwise there is a combinatorial explosion of things that are implementation specific choices, and perhaps transformable, whereas the profile should really be about the community of practice's intent to interoperate - and hence not necessarily transformable.

This fits best with existing practice where we already have negotiation over some aspects - what we are doing is adding either another aspect, or an extension point. (This Use Case is intended to register the requirement that other aspects are considered - we might still end up choosing a very specific non-extensible mechanism, but best not to do it out of ignorance of such use cases :-)
