The original intention of the 'family' was, and I see no reason why it shouldn't continue to be, that the documents are all aspects of profiles/profiling. 

As per the bullet list in the FoD section, we have these sentences about each document:

* [PROF] an RDF vocabulary that describes profiles and related resources
* [PROF-CONNEG] specific guidance on how to negotiate for Internet resource content using profiles
* [PROF-IETF] - Indicating and Negotiating Profiles in HTTP: an IETF Internet-Draft defining HTTP Headers for HTTP content negotiation by profile
* The DXWG also plans to provide [PROF-GUIDANCE] - Profile Guidance: general recommendations and guidance on profiling.

I'd like to see the Guidance recommend that for formal profile descriptions, PROF be used and for mechanics for getting data according to profiles, CONNEG be used. PROF will happily make more references to Guidance about overall profile establishment, best practices and so on if the Guidance document matures.
