I'm just worried about what happens when D7 comes out.

I don't think that the hook_profile_modules is very sensible for  
install profile module requirements, and I fully intend on
introducing .info files for Drupal 7.

This would mean that install profile packaging will get broken during  
the drupal 7 development, and will need to
be maintained, in tandem with the old mechanism.
