I set up one profile "Audio on Speakers" and another profile "Audio on TV" (which is the new name for the master profile). All I did was change the system settings for the Audio on Speakers profile. That still leaves something to be desired. Luckily, Quartz, the skin I use let's you rename the menus, so I named the XBMC menu into the profile name ("P: Speakers" and "P: TV" to make them not scroll).
That still left the switching. There is no easy way to switch a profile in XBMC, but you can add the switch to your favourites:
<favourite name="P: Speakers" thumb="/path/to/your/image.png">LoadProfile(Audio on Speakers)</favourite>
<favourite name="P: TV" thumb="/path/to/your/image.png">LoadProfile(Audio on TV)</favourite>
After that you simply add that favourite into your menus if your skin allows it, or you look it up in your favourites. Not as nice as automatic, but a workable solution until that time, I suppose.
I too need separate audio profiles and this sounded like a great work around, however I just found out that each profile has separate media libraries, so that means maintaining two libraries does it not? Also if I watch a TV episode on one profile, can I assume that it will only show as watched until the particular profile?
Problem solved. Found I could change second profile to 'Share with default', so great workaround, thank you mediumdry! Just one question though, what do you mean with "P: TV to make them not scroll"? All I see now is a P: in front of my profile names.
Also does any one know if it's possible to have XBMC start next time with Master profile by default?
I found a problem where by after switching profiles, the favourites no longer worked for that particular profile. When I say no longer work, I mean when you try to bring up favourites, nothing appears, even though favourites.xml is present.
I found a solution here...

main menu item type = custom
choose item --> enter LoadProfile(profilename)
...so now able to switch profiles nice and quick, and favourites are working fine again for both profiles.
Also of interest Leechguy has created an add-on that has XBMC starting with a profile of your choice.
