what? why does the existence of the framework profile change the  
reasoning?  You need enough of a server to install plugins, then  
everything else required for the app is pulled in.  The framework  
profile defines this minimal server.  The framework profile just makes  
it easier to assemble servers, it doesn't change how to add stuff to a  
server.  I don't see any relevance of any of the other profiles since  
they are designed to help with assembling servers with specific  
capabilities, which is irrelevant to the process of installing plugins  
into a frameworks server.

not sure how coherent this is but I don't understand what you are  
saying at all.
