Should there be multiple HTML profiles (different levels of 
functionality that work in HTML)? I can see this being useful to provide 
a very light-weight library, especially good for mobile use; and a

Generating multiple profiles takes additional work and can introduce 
errors (in the spec, in the code, in the use). If the full-capability 
one is sufficiently light-weight, then it does not much matter. Perhaps 
a base-level profile that can pull in needed extensions based on the
