@aisaac As an English-speaker, extensions do not make sense as "constraints". Constrain really means to limit and is the opposite of expand or extend. This is why I favor listing contraints AND extensions in the definition. I understand how the dictionary definition could be used to include a profile with extensions, but it is going to be quite counter-intuitive to readers and will cause confusion. I see no problem with using both constrain and extend, which are easily understood.
