I think your "standards profile" and our "application profile" are the 
same?  3.1.2 of the requirements doc:

"The TC will develop Bindings for carrying the request/response protocols 
over different transport and security layers.  The TC will also develop 
Profiles which constrain and extend the Protocols, the Signature Formats 
they operate on, and their Bindings, to target particular environments.  A 
combination of a Protocol Profile, Signature Profile, and Bindings Profile 
yields an Application Profile, which will be a fully described service."

or 3.11:

"The request/response protocols, signature formats, and bindings, can all 
be profiled.  A profile can limit optionality, instantiate abstractions, 
add new elements into extensibility points, and add processing rules.

A combination of these profiles is an Application Profile that can be used 
to address a particular use case.  DSS server or client implementations 
will be compliant with particular application profiles of DSS, not with DSS
