>What is meant by "named"? Is a name the same as an identifier? The same
as a title on a document?

>Note that we have stated that for content negotiation the resource MUST
have a web-based identifier (URI/IRI). When a profile is a document
(e.g. PDF) then I would say that it SHOULD have an identifier, but if it
doesn't it does not cease to be a profile.

Antoine replied:

>I think at the level of a definition we can give ourselves a bit of slack, and only refine later (i.e. in our guidance document) what are the possible "names" or identifiers and what level of mandatoriness we expect.

>By the way I think what you outline in the second paragraph does not conflict with what is in https://w3c.github.io/dxwg/profiles/ (either as rather clean text or very drafty notes).
