Are those the only tools for which it applies? Is runtime test core only?
In other words, to do the "Core and C++" profile, you'd run libchk and
cmdchk with the appropriate -T option and just not run the desktop tests?

If it can be done consistently, how about changing the possibilities
to "-T core,c++" and "-T core,c++,desktop" with the latter being the
default if -T is not specified?

Let's make sure we look at this. We definitely want X to be part of the
desktop profile.
