I file this under the general trap of assuming that a feature that can
be used well is necessary. I can think of a number of ways to make
excellent use of a can opener on my coffee cup. However, it would make
my coffee cup unwieldy and more expensive, so I don't have one there.
It's not a matter of identifying the benefits alone, but the
relationship between the costs and the benefits. How much performance
and/or resident memory size do you sacrifice for that feature as
compared with other features? Is *that* worth it?
I'm not taking a stand on profiles per se, just advocating for looking
at more than just benefits.
