The [I-D currently says](https://profilenegotiation.github.io/I-D-Profile-Negotiation/I-D-Profile-Negotiation.html#rfc.section.4.1) that servers SHOULD handle `Accept-Profile` before looking at other negotiation dimensions:
> Although servers are free to implement negotiation as they see fit, if the User Agent sends an "Accept-Profile" header, they SHOULD consider representations not conforming to any of the listed profiles as non-interpretable by the client. This means that a representation that conforms to a listed profile, but has a low preference score on other dimensions, SHOULD be considered as more desired than a representation with a higher preference score on other dimensions but that does not conform to any listed profile. If no "Accept-Profile" header preference is given, the profile dimension SHOULD be ignored for negotiation purposes. Nonetheless, in all cases, the server's response SHOULD contain a "Content-Profile" header listing the URIs of all profiles to which it knows the representation conforms.

Shall we add something along those lines to conneg-by-ap, too?
