[last call] Conformance claims

Technical/substantive issue:

Currently the conformance section states that a claim is optional.

In order to promote reliable discovery, I propose that in order to conform  
to WCAG 2 a web unit must have a conformance claim.

This claim can either be "inline", presented as part of the web unit, or  
can be associated metadata, potentially linking to but not linked to from  
the relevant web unit.

This will allow for discovery of conformant content, and I believe  
encourage quality testing and the development of frameworks for  
determining trust and reliability of conformance evaluation.

cheers
