I asked Joshua to retract this request because he was basing it on the
mistaken impression that profiles weren't EAPI controlled (the Council
voted to put profiles under EAPI control a while ago). Unfortunately he
hasn't responded, so instead I'll ask the Council to disregard this
since between the EAPI mechanism and the way we've used previously of
not introducing changes that will break older things (by not reusing
names, and not requiring support except on EAPI change) we've already
got the whole thing covered.
