  If you didn't know this, there is a fairly good chance that you can
live without it. DLNA only makes UPnP AV (which is open spec) very
specific and adds the concept of media profiles to ensure
interoperability between different implementations. Some of our
developers have lived without this spec.

  There is some basic info about device classes and terms on their
website that you still would want to familiarize yourself with.

  I can't find it either so I guess you'll have to contact them about it.

  No you don't (membership fee is 5000$/year IIRC).
