Both. I think it entirely reasonable (and it's been accepted as in scope) to have Guidelines that indicate machine-readability of profile listing and other info but that also have mechanisms that profile for human-friendly versions of such tasks. The human versions would necessarily not break with the machine versions.

We just can't expect people to use and understand profiling if we only provide HTTP mechanisms! Who can set HTTP headers manually and inspect results? Not most people I work with. And yet in order for profiling guidelines to be understood and adopted, we need people to be able to do this. If we let them, we then want to make sure they do it in ways compatible with the HTTP mechanics.
