I updated the text to say explicitly that the list of profiles is not 
closed [1].  I also added a clause to deal with the situation that there 
is not a single highest profile (basically, the ruleset should be rejected).

Best, Jos

PS I think your concern about multiple profiles should be discussed at 
the face-to-face.
