I have not read your entire post (heavy!), but regarding this
particuliar point, I can see a use for mutliple profile per user. You
no loading image from different server, plugin disabled, etc) for your
pr0^Wregular browsing, and one more functionnal for your intranet. This
specific example would be better served with a "zone"-based security
model, but you get my drift. You might have different profile setted
with different eye candy to suit your mood and so on.
