Maybe we need to fork this discussion... Initial question was: Is that
the case (as you described above)?  It seems the answer is yes - that
is the intent.  Given that, I would just like to quickly note that at
a minimum the names don't seem to indicate that to me.  Larger comment
is:  Do we really *have* to do that or can we find a way to let them
"largely work" in CSS and make that be what we mean by "profile"
instead -- sort of "this is the *potentially* really slow stuff"..
