How should we define a list of actions (methods?) in the abstract that a client and server must/may etc implement? What formal function description languages are available? Should it be something like this:

    function request_available_profiles:
        a client requests the available profiles for a resource

    function get_profile:
        a client requests a profile preference list from a server

    function list_profiles:
        a server lists the profiles for a resource    

    function send_profile
        a server responds to a get_profile request with either a specific profile or a defalt profile if the requested profile(s) is unavailable
