sorry about the choice of wording - that was only a comment about the title of the poll - not the definition itself - whilst the idea of "replacing" "profile" with "data profile" isnt logical the inclusion of the chosen definition of "data profile" can certainly be accommodated. 

The definitions sections needs a quick update to do this and its an editorial change because it doesnt affect the spec in any way - at no point does the behaviour rely on the definition of "data profile" - conneg only cares about the names of profiles and declared relationships between them which this definition does not cover.

It the characterisation that the rest of the world's use of "profile" in senses other than data is somehow invalidated because this WG has developed a definition for a specific type of profile that is syllogistic.   It will nevertheless help to include the definition for data profiles to help people understand what is being negotiated.
