I agree.
An extensible rules system which others developers can hook into would 
allow for this.
The user might just select a phone profile (Do not disturb, except...) 
when they set her calendar appointment, and a rule can be generated, 
without the users becoming a programmer.
A rule might exist, set profile whenever I meet with this contact, and 
the profile is auto-selected when the appointment is made.
