Agreed that we don't want 2 additional assemblies. Replacing the "minimal" servers with "web
profile" equivalents seems reasonable to me. 

I think users would find it convenient if an assembly could contain multiple configuration
files. A full EE6 assembly could be invoked with a framework, minimal, web profile, or full
EE6 configuration. Similarly, a web profile could contain framework and minimal configurations,
