its great to see a lot of quite profound debate going on in a range of
issues on the nature of profiles, happening in the right place in git
issues.  There may be a little overlap in discussions so as an editor can I
ask people getting deep into such threads to do a sanity check and make
sure all the issues you are concerned about are reflected inline, in the
right place, in all the drafts of deliverables, so its possible to work
through those documents and pick up all your insights, suggestions and
concerns in a systematic way.

for example, fundamental questions about the nature of profiles feel like
they may be popping up in multiple places, with questions about extension,
authoritative artefacts, axioms related to inheritance, expressiveness of
constraint languages, and roles of artefacts w.r.t. base specifications
(full or partial constraint sets). Whilst I have tried to track all these
and dont think there are any fundamental problems, each of them tends to
revisit the same issue around the nature of conformance and inheritance of
conformance requirements, and we can't afford to have the whole debate over
and over.

Maybe its all under control but I think its important we are all satisfied
that the discussions we are having are being fed into the drafts, and we
can start to close out these issues, and systematically cascade decisions
to help address all related issues.
