Method or Data? Method is always bearer, of course.

In a sense, I guess that's what I was saying originally. If people were confused by the absence of a statement about Data, I was
just trying to point out that sending it didn't make any sense.

Yes, I think it's just a matter of clarity. It's never come up, but that's because I'm the one who implemented the profile, so the
people using my code don't mess with what's happening underneath.
