Note that 'applications' is not really a useful category.  But what's
more both nss-certs, glibc-locales and other packages that on their own
provide everything you need in a search path can already be handled
easily with existing mechanisms of Guix Home.  This is not a use case
that calls for multiple profiles and the fix to missing these single
packages (assuming you want it expressed solely in terms of profiles)
would be to add them back to the default profile which still has its
uses no matter how clean you want the split to be.
