Well, you have a point. With devicelinks, I'll admit it's not obvious. So without putting too much smart in cctiff, do you have way to tell that a pair of profiles are being used, in the conventional sense? Then you could kick in the rule that, provided no profile name is being designated by the -d argument, that you could enforce always embedding the destination profile? I'm just kicking ideas.
