I think it would be an excellent addition to the full platform.

For web profile, I believe that it will eventually be part of the web
as many web apps tend to spin off their own threads. However, I'd rather
err on the safe side and keep this as part of the full profile only for now
and let industry experience drive it to the web profile. Note, there is
nothing keeping vendors from offering it as an extension to their web
profile configurations.

Letting developers drive the web profile content will avoid bloat issues
and criticisms that we've run into in the past.
