- There are no testable conformance requirements for documents:

"All Compound Documents must have a root document which has a DOM."

- This spec by design only applies to XML-based languages, so this  
does not seem like a meaningful criterion.

"Conformant content SHOULD not raise security exceptions or events."

- Since no security model is specified, how can a document possibly  
know if it is conforming to this requirement or not? Also, since a  
SHOULD is not a hard requirement, this does not constitute a  
conformance requirement.
