That is a good question.  I would think that it will be a combination of 
how the profile is built and how nALFS implements the ALFS DTD and uses 
the new logging DTD to help itself out.  The way the profiles are built 
now would probably work just fine.  It would really come down to how 
nALFS can read all that and keep itself up to date (or at least not 
confused).  Kevin would need to answer for sure.
