I have to say that I really like the essence of this clear, simple definition from the IETF document:

> In the context of this proposal, a profile is a description of the structural and/or semantic constraints of a group of documents.

I'm a bit unclear on the "of a group of documents", but I like the "structural and/or semantic". 

Also, I'd be happy to shorten the statement "or provides guidance or explanation about the usage of" in Tom's proposal because the "or"s there saddle us with some language ambiguity: "(or provides guidance or explanation) about the usage" or "(or provides guidance or (explanation about the usage)". 

If we approve the definition, I'd like to have a chance to word-smith to make sure that it is clear. My gut tells me that we don't need both guidance and explanation in there, so we could clean that up easily.
