There's exactly 0 documentation on profiles, sorry.
Personally, I would not modify the profile, but rather just use
livecd-stage1. If all you're looking for is a "stage4" type of deal
where it has packages above and beyond "system", then I would just throw
them in a livecd-stage1 and tar up the "stage" yourself.
