You cant really do a server profile so far nested within the 
default-linux profiles. The flags will be just wrong.
Also a server is not something you should be switching profiles every 6 

If you are serious about a server profile I'd suggest dropping what you 
are thinking now. Lets have a meeting (hardened + server + infra +
releng ) folks and do it right together.
