it isn't a "mistaken impression". Both Joshua and me think there are
alternatives and that the choice to put profiles/* under EAPI was
unfortunate and should be reviewed. It's also my opinion that what the
council approved was the use of a EAPI file under each profile to mark
the type of atoms that can be used in the profile files (slots, etc).
