The conformance committee defines two types of profiles: - static profiles which describe *exactly* what data can be sent/received for a particular interaction. These will be based on the standard "static model" MIF structure, possibly extended to capture a couple of additional pieces of data, such as ITS support, realm support, etc. One of the things a static model indicates is what templates apply at a particular node in the model.
- dynamic profiles which describe a set of expected behavior across a set of interactions. This is where we get into behavioral aspects, and there will certainly be extensions here to indicate such content as expected response times.
