Hi all,

chasing down my last AIs...

At the F2F we opened "ISSUE-20: We need to have a way to express how conformance interacts with the availability of hardware", which I had an action to handle.

Jo stumbled over the following yesterday (the operative part is after "However", the beginning is provided for context):

A renderer is conformant to CSS Writing Modes Level 3 if, in addition to interpreting the style sheet as defined by the appropriate specifications, it supports all the features defined by CSS Writing Modes Level 3 by parsing them correctly and rendering the document accordingly. However, the inability of a UA to correctly render a document due to limitations of the device does not make the UA non-conformant. (For example, a UA is not required to render color on a monochrome monitor.)

I believe that this can simply be adapted for any other situations.
