It has frequently been observed that many of the topics expressed as "authoring
conformance" are primarily a matter of "document conformance": a conforming
authoring tool or content generation tool MUST (first and foremost) generate
conforming documents. There may be other requirements for "authoring tool"
conformance as well, such as following accessibility guidelines.

I think discussion of where "authoring conformance" belongs may be easier to
sort out if the distinction is made more explicit.
