Do the profiles actually have to be in such a hierarchical order?
Couldn't they have a more flat structure?

So a user could set
profiles=amd64 desktop kde
to select the profiles he wants to activate.
Every profile itself can define parents/master profiles etc.
I think that such a profile structure would be more flexible and enables 
the user to select good defaults for his environment without setting too 
many options.
