+1 @RubenVerborgh - as you pointed out elsewhere its the nature of limited mechanisms that they can get  re-covered by more general ones.  Clients can just use the profile negotiation mechanism if they have it - if an information profile implies a MIME type profile as well then its perfectly legal just to ask for the generic MIME type and receive  the matching specific MIME type profile.  (i.e. you dont have to try both mechanisms if you know the resource conforms to the conneg-by-ap behavioural specification, but if you dont know you are free to try both.
