| | Profiles: Can you figure this exception puzzler?

At the moment I have my family set up as an exception: I call it Family. I give them a unique ring tone so I can identify them and boost up their volume to Medium when my BB is in the holster. I don't want to miss them, right?
So far so good.
Now, when I'm outside (shopping mall, crowded street) I put my BB profile to Loud -- with everything boosted up to Maximum so I can hear. So I don't miss anybody. Which I don't. Except: my family. This weekend, my wife gave me an earful when I answered her when she used a friend's phone, because I wasn't picking up her call from her phone. That's because the "family" exception is doing what it is supposed to do and rang her call in at Medium which of course I didn't hear.
My puzzle: To be able to hear my family when I'm using the Loud profile, I can deselect the exception when I activate Loud, but then I lose the unique ringtone. Plus it's no longer a one-click change. And switching back is cumbersome, too.
Is there a more elegant way to do this?
