I completely agree.

I had no intention of putting the 'm' word in the spec., I was just
using it to sound clever.
I am OK with just putting the spec out there and letting implementers
find their level, and was only offering an alternative to the "profiles"
option. Having said that, is there *anything* in there that we should
say is mandatory, e.g. the object/array/name/value structure?
