There isn't a good way to do this right now. Our current profile mechanism
uses copy-on-reference semantics, so even if a profile were powerful enough
to meet your needs, you'd be left with stale versions of the elements
(stereotypes, etc) which had been copied into your project that wouldn't
reflect any updates to the profile.

This enhancement request
http://argouml.tigri​s.org/issues/show_bu​g.cgi?id=3497 deals with this issue,
so you can add your votes there.

Some of the underlying framework needed to implement our improved profile
support (a Google Summer of Code project) will also benefit what you want to
do, so you should see improvements by the end of the summer.
