As a suggestion - and I'm only highlighting options - we could split  
out the fancier things into one or more new specifications, leaving  
XEP-0060 as a core, with extra XEPs holding additional features, and  
XEP-0163 binds XEP-0060 and a selection of brightly coloured coat  
hangers into the profile that is PEP.

I'm not sure if this is a good idea, mind - it's not clear to me if  
this gives a net benefit or not - but it would keep XEP-0163's  
"profile" status.
