remove the caching of profile documents /make profile documents realtime capable

a big thing in notes programming is the lack of communication between notes object/elements:

e.g. selecting a document in an embedded view, and the form should know which one is selected

A workaround for this could be the communication via a profile field,

but the profile document is cached !!! and not able to hold information in realtime.

Because of this a lot of programming must be done via environment variables, with a lot of disadvantages:

a very new and important one is the missing environment in nomad applications

The solution: remove the caching in profile documents!

It will open the door to new programming features  and much better usability of notes programs.

    Notes 12.0.1 can use a Named Document instead of a Profile Document.

    This is not cached.

    Why using an embedded view? If you want to store the value of the selected item in the document, use a combobox or listbox field type instead.
