 I would tend to think that canonicalization should roll up. We don't
 standardize on /some-post/page-1/, we standardize on /some-post/.

 Likewise, http://profiles.wordpress.org/users/nacin/profile/ should not
 redirect to http://profiles.wordpress.org/users/nacin/profile/public/. I'm
 not particularly familiar with the internal routing of BuddyPress, but the
 redirect should be in the reverse. /settings/general/ should go to
 /settings/, not the other way around.

 And, assuming /users/nacin/ reflects the public profile, which means that
 /users/nacin/profile/ or /users/nacin/profile/public/ should redirect to
 /users/nacin/. "Ambiguous item URIs" are fine because we know what they
 should be on them. The most specific versions shouldn't be canonical in
 those cases.

 Am I making sense? Am I wrong?
