An alternative to using serviceParameter, which I personally think is 
preferable in many situations, is to create a subclass of Profile (e.g. 
MathServiceProfile), and then define whatever properties you like for 
that subclass (e.g., algorithm, taxonomicReference).  This approach is 
described and illusrated (simply) under Profile Hierarchy on the 
examples page:
   http://www.daml.org/services/owl-s/1.1B/examples.html
