I'd like to change that behavior so that the toolset and steps are
reset when a base profile is selected.

Because the "current base profile id" is not stored, there's no

Selecting a profile should never be destructive. Maybe I just want
to load new handlers or run a single import step.
But why not clearing the registries if a complete base profile is
*applied*? Even if it is the current base profile I can't see why
we would not want to do that.
This would work. But I realize that there's something else I want: I
want to be able to apply a base profile without purge. That's
important to refresh a base profile config without touching potential
extensions that have already been imported.
So just deciding to clean the registries when a base profile is
applied is too restrictive.
Yes. In fact, I would prefer to be able to introspect both "current
base profile" and "applied extension profiles" from the tool.
I don't want to go down that road. The next step would be to keep
track of the applied profiles a snapshot is based on. Things become
more and more complicated and we still can't rely on that
information: Sites created with older CMF versions don't have that
information and manual customizations can make it quite useless.
