Default Touching profiles

The situation is complicated:
- The devmanual[1] reference is wrong. I wonder where it comes from.

The devmanual wasn't considered policy (mainly because it was started
by ca connection devmanual <-> policy creeps in.

- Some arch teams don't want other devs to touch "their" profiles:
"DON'T TOUCH THIS FILE. Instead, file a bug and assign it to..."
But this arch is neiter mentioned in the handbook nor in the manual:

- The devhandbook[2] is also kind of unmaintained.
Devmanual and -handbook are waiting for a merge AFAIR.

- And there is already a stalled bug[3] about "Developer Handbook should
document how/when to touch arch profiles' files"

Summary: You do it wrong either way.
