But I suppose that those are profile-specific guests, which might even
have broader privileges than the default guest that comes with common.

I dare say that calling them "guests" in IVI is even misleading,
because it might hint at permissions/restrictions that are typically
associated with the "common" guest.

I'd rather call them respectively ivi-guestxx and common-guest, so
that it's always clear what are the associated permissions.
