or just make tizen common "generally useful". i would push against a tizen pc
profile and leave that to "one day is someone wants to do actual pc-like

instead make tizen common as much of a superset of profiles as possible. when
used as a "desktop" (chromebook/netbook/laptop too), then it functions as one
with that ui, but could switch to another ui style at any point (runtime?
perhaps even decide on a screen by screen basis what mode/style is runs, eg
have a touchscreen on the device that is in mobile mode and externally plugged
in monitors run in "desktop" mode and if you plug in a bug 40"+ tv it goes into
tv mode on those screens).

this way tizen common doesn't have issues having to "conform" to some profile
and standard. we can modify it as needed to achieve general usefulness. use it
as a place to perhaps fix up ideas or merge things from multiple profiles that
duplicate effort.
