What is the point of a specification that avoids making decisions? Being in the HTTP environment actually provides so detailed 'guidelines' how to do design such things like discovery and deletion of 'stuff' that it makes no sense whatsoever to defer that to, um, profiles (which is sort of a synonym for 'dunno, shove that decision in that future basket').
