Profile is a collection of preferences uses by conferences etc.
In the case of SIP a profile is also the name for the resulting SIP UA
created by a particular profile.

Context is a narrowed down view of something, in the case of the dialplan a
context is a set of extensions.  It's like having a dedicated set of
extensions per distinct context name like parallel universes.  both the foo
context and the bar context can have extension 2001.
