> Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
> In "Optional components of a conformance claim" section, it reads "This information should be provided in a form that consumers can use, preferably machine-readable metadata." Who is "consumers"? Does it mean "end users of the web site/web appication"? If so, why "consumers" instead of "users"?

Response from the Working Group
================================
Good catch. We should be consistent. We only user 'consumers' in the
one location in the document. We will change it to 'This information
should be provided to users in a usable form, preferably
machine-readable metadata' in the next draft.
