Would you mind filing a new bug with that suggestion? It seems to me that,
notwithstanding the merits of the suggestion, making this change would not
address the original intent of the bug, which is to remove some or all
authoring conformance requirements. (That is to say, if your suggested change
was made, I don't think that would lead the people requesting removal of
some/all requirements to conclude that no further change is needed.)
