I might have gotten this wrong, so apologies up front...
[RFC 6906](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6906) defines the _link relation type_ "profile" (as in
`Link: <urn:example:profiles:1>; rel="profile"` relating the context URI to `<urn:example:profiles:1>` as the profile URI for the context URI).
The case I'm trying to model is that two URIs are linked through the relation "alternate" (saying that one URI is an alternative representation of the other; `rel="alternate"`). In this case I want to say which profile the alternative representation ("link target", in [RFC 5988 lingo](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5988#section-5.1)) has. Since the link relation is already "alternate", I need to have a [target attribute](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5988#section-5.4) "profile", so that I can say
```Link: <http://some.domain/alternative/representation>; rel="alternate"; type="text/turtle" profile="urn:example:profile:1"```
I don't think I can do that with RFC 6906.
