Subject: Re: [emergency-cap-profiles] Definition of "Profile"

>The RSS profile is a good example where there is no "subset" at all,
only an "interpretation" of the spec. 

Um... not sure which RSS profile you're talking about.  In any event, I
think this is really just a difference of interpretation of the term

>To create a subset, some of the optional and potentially required
elements of the CAP spec would have to be dropped in the profile.  

All profile-compliant messages are valid CAP, but not all valid CAP is
profile-compliant.  In that sense the profile defines a subset of the
universe of possible CAP messages.  However, "interpretation" is also
within the working definition.  Not sure what the practical issue is
