Have you verified this or are you just assuming?

This I definitely agree with, with the exception that I am specifically
looking to create a profile set that *is* changed every release. The
main difference here would be that profiles would be deprecated/removed
at a *much* slower rate.

I'm not sure what either Infra or Hardened would have to do with
"default-linux" stuff, except that their input would be very valued as
they would be experienced in these matters. I have no problem with
having some sort of meeting. My primary reason for the profile is to
keep all of the "cruft" from dev-lang/php out of the desktop profiles
and to keep the gnome and kde stuff out of the server profile. I *know*
that they're not perfect or even what is necessarily desired, which was
the point of including all of the profile stuff in the original email.
