In Section 2.2.2, the spec says:

In addition, user agents must implement the features defined in the DOM
> Parsing and Serialization specification, HTML Editing APIs, and UndoManager
> and DOM Transaction specifications that apply to their conformance class.

Below which it says:

The following features are defined in the DOM Parsing and Serialization
> specification: [DOMPARSING]
> * innerHTML
> * outerHTML

I looked at the conformance class stuff, in particular the "Web browsers
and other interactive user agents" bit, and it wasn't clear to me that they
are required to implement [DOMPARSING]. I assume they are, but it wasn't
clear to me from the spec.

Am I correct that they are? If so, could we clarify that in the spec?
