I've argued against calling "functional profiles" in Conneg with word "profile". I've not fought for it a lot, but I think my points then still apply and can be used here: there may be a point of having a generalized model for profiles. But still the main object of Conneg is negotiating for data profiles, and putting other notions in the doc has a negative impact on the clarity on the main goal.

The overal focus is clear in the use cases and requirements, and as a matter of fact in our charter: https://www.w3.org/2017/dxwg/charter#goals

So I believe this issue is turning things upside down. As a WG, our mandate is to start from data profiles. And we may work on providing a home for a generalized definition on top of that. Not the other way round.
