Hi all,

One more point that we should discuss on the guidelines is the fact that 
we mandate the publication of a conformance statement for each and every 
Transformation Deployment that wishes to claim conformance. This 
triggers some concern from the Director, as this means that all 
conforming implementations must disclose their existence to the public 
in practice.

People should be allowed to conform to the guidelines (as well as to any 
other W3C spec) on a private basis, for instance for contractual reasons 
between parties.

I think that what we're trying to achieve here is to make sure that 
Transformation Deployments that wish to claim conformance "publicly" 
provide a conformance statement.

In short, I suggest to clarify that the need to provide a conformance 
statement is restricted to Transformation Deployments that want to claim 
conformance on a public basis.

Francois.
