the up to date/approved version of that is at:
but really, the canonical source is the compliance spec itself.

The intent is that each workgroup/vertical write (*) a layer document,
which adds on to the base compliance. At the moment the implementation
of that is a chapter in the single compliance document, describing
the profile for the vertical. There's only one instance in 1.1,
the Netbook profile, which says very little, so it's not clear to me
if that model is actually going to work long term, but let's try it.
There's a second example on the wiki, which was an initial effort at
a handset profile:
(*) "write" could consist of just feeding me (as the spec editor)
the appropriate information, and then doing reviews.

it's going to be part of the core compliance as of 1.2. I don't
think we've envisioned a model where a vertical /removes/ any components
from the core, so that would make the answer Yes, I guess, without
knowing anything specific about IVI.
Hope this helps.
