IMHO, we shouldn't even have desktop/server subprofiles to begin with.
I've always considered Gentoo to be an "opt-in" distro where after a
successful install, you end up with a bash prompt and a _means_ of
installing new packages.
Finding out what USE flags mean and do is part of the Gentoo experience.
If we were doing spin-off distros like Ubuntu and Fedora do, then
subprofiles would be fine, but we're not.
So with my X hat on, I won't be adding any "X" subprofile.
And with my (former?) Gnome hat on, I vote against any "gnome" subprofile.
