If "The Web" had done that, we would have 
interoperable Internet services now instead of 
emailing documents to each other.   

Web services are not The Web. 

In fact, there ain't no "The Web".  It's a 
myth like King Arthur's Court.  It never 
existed.  It is often spoken of by religious 
technical archaeologists digging through ruins whose 
builders left no decipherable records so 
all they really have are theories about how 
the parts were intended to work together.

I think it speaks volumes about the quality of these specifications if
they need profiles to "make it easier to discuss Web services

Could you imagine if the Web had done that?  LOL.
