Hm a side effect is that if you select the initial base profile, then an 
extension profile, then the original base profile again, you won't have what 
you expect.

Because the "current base profile id" is not stored, there's no way to do 
detect the change to a different base profile. Should I store that property 
to allow for that use case?
