@pwin You found one "profile" that was stated to be "an extension of" another. That is in contradiction to the definition that considers profiles to be "constraints". What fits better in the definition is the statement that a profile "defines additional constraints, conventions, or extensions " that comes from [RFC 6906](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6906). Limiting to constraints - or I could say constraining our definition to constraints - leaves out a significant number of actual APs.
