A profile is a special type of specification that constrains or composes other specifications to achieve an improved level of interoperability. Profiles are categorized into two classes - composition or constraining.

Composition Profiles: Frequently, individual specifications are developed in isolation to address a specific part of a larger technical subject. Composition Profiles define how such technical specifications should be used together to form a more complete specification that addresses the combined challenge; e.g. secure, reliable messaging. Composition Profiles resolve overlaps or potential ambiguities when using two or more specifications together.

Constraining Profiles: These profiles make specifications more precise by reducing the number of options available to implementers.
