The scope of an application profile may or may not be industry-wide.
In ISO circles they tend to talk about application profiles that
serve to tailor the use of one or more base specifications. So
perhaps that's an adequate term for such customizations.

A Framework for Creating Application Profiles

The intended audience for this is a rather technical one, I would
think (i.e. a spec addendum). To define a profile you have to be
conversant with both ebRIM and ebRS. But it occurs to me that your
first title suggests a kind of general primer/tutorial that outlines
the possibilities and provides some brief examples. So perhaps
something along the lines of a spec/primer pair might be appropriate.
