RDF/XML, Turtle, ...) but something more like an RDF Shape [1]. I think we need to interact with the W3C data shape WG on this. There has been some discussion on shape negotiation on the LOD list [2] that I sparked off a few weeks ago, but there has been no consensus on the matter yet.

Good point, Lars. The inability to negotiate the "profile" is
definitely one of the gaps to be addressed. But my proposal was less
ambitious, and was just about basic HTTP conneg (so, media types). If
this is not enabled, it would be difficult to get to more
sophisticated features.

PS: I've been following the "profile" thread you started with the
greatest interest.
