Here I'll break down the statement into parts for answering:

1.a. it may be useful for clients to be able to 'get resource by profile' by a characteristic of the profile
Currently the Content Negoiation by Profile specification "Conneg" (https://w3c.github.io/dxwg/conneg-by-ap/) only supports getting a resource conforming to a profile by identifying that profile (by URI or token). You may also specify a preference order list of profile identifiers. It would be a ask outside Conneg to determine which profile you wanted to retrieve resources conforming to.

The Profiles Vocabulary (PROF: https://raw.githack.com/w3c/dxwg/prof-3PWD-candidate/prof/) could be used to create a catalogue of profiles which could then be used to discover a profile meeting a particular characteristic of interest.

1.b. Characteristics could be listed in order of preference as profile uri can be.
So following on from the points above: you would need to determine the order or profiles using PROF or other cataloguing and then submit the preference order identifier set to the Conneg server for response via 'get resource by profile'
