Are you referring to:

"User agents should ignore the profile content attribute on head elements.

When the attribute would be used as a globally unique name, the user 
agent should instead always assume that all known profiles apply to all 
pages, and should therefore apply the conventions of all known metadata 
profiles to the document.

When the attribute's value would be handled as a URL and dereferenced, 
the user agent may resolve the attribute's value, and if that is 
successful, may then fetch the resulting absolute URL and apply the 
appropriate processing.

The profile IDL attribute of the head element must reflect the content 
attribute of the same name."


That's not a definition of what head/@profile is. Sorry.

And it's incorrect in that it talks about a single URI, not a set of URIs.
