Then I may be misunderstanding section 12. There are profile
definitions, but they are 'Non normative examples' [sic!]. What's the
purpose of these profiles? What will a conforming user-agent be? Section
13 only says, device-limitations don't imply non-conformance so I
suppose a conforming user agent must implement all selectors applicable
for a distinct device. Maybe I need some education on this...
