@NonNullByDefault public interface Profile
Common ancestor of all profile types. Profiles define the communication flow between the framework and bindings, i.e. how (and if) certain events and commands are forwarded from the framework to the thing handler and vice versa.

Profiles are allowed to maintain some transient state internally, i.e. the same instance of a profile will be used per link for all communication so that the temporal dimension can be taken in account.
