As far as I can tell, the bug is ridiculing the idea of having authoring
conformance requirements, or at least ridiculing the specific authoring
conformance requirements that are currently in the spec. I do not see any
constructive suggestions for change or flagging of concrete problems in the
summary or description, just snark.

In my opinion, this bug should be closed. If anyone would like to raise real
issues with conformance requirements, or even make a sincere suggestion that
authoring conformance requirements should be removed, then that would be a
reasonable bug report. This bug report is just ridiculous and insulting.
