Re: [dxwg] A short token to specify a profile may be used as long as there is a discoverable mapping from it to the profile's identifying URI [ID5] (5.5) (#290)

The motivation for catering for tokens is that existing profile negotiation systems (pyLDAPI, OAI-PMH, OGC Name Server) all use tokens. The things clients using these services currently need to know is a resource URI as well as service endpoints, QSA parameters etc. 

With the inclusion of tokens in `list profiles` responses, then the number of things client needs to know is reduced - just the resource URI.

The additional client burden, if tokens are given by a server but not wanted by the client, is that the client just has to ignore them in the Link header.
