--- Comment #1 from Leif Halvard Silli <xn--mlform-iua@xn--mlform-iua.no> ---
]] Applicable specifications MAY define new document content (e.g. a foobar
element), MAY prohibit certain otherwise conforming content (e.g. prohibit use
of <table>s), or MAY change the semantics, DOM mappings, or other processing
rules for content defined in this specification. Whether a document is or is
not a conforming HTML5 document does not depend on the use of applicable
specifications: if the syntax and semantics of a given conforming HTML5
document is unchanged by the use of applicable specification(s), then that
document remains a conforming HTML5 document. If the semantics or processing of
a given (otherwise conforming) document is changed by use of applicable
specification(s), then it is not a conforming HTML5 document. For such cases,
the applicable specifications SHOULD define conformance terminology.

As a suggested but not required convention, such specifications might define
conformance terminology such as: "Conforming HTML5+XXX document", where XXX is
a short name for the applicable specification. (Example: "Conforming
HTML5+AutomotiveExtensions document").[[
