The spec has now been updated -


The definition of "conforming documents" is here:


  Conforming documents are those that comply with all the
  conformance criteria for documents. For readability, some of
  these conformance requirements are phrased as conformance
  requirements on authors; such requirements are implicitly
  requirements on documents: by definition, all documents are
  assumed to have had an author. (In some cases, that author may
  itself be a user agent — such user agents are subject to
  additional rules, as explained below.)

  For example, if a requirement states that "authors must not use
  the foobar element", it would imply that documents are not
  allowed to contain elements named foobar.

If you're satisfied with that as a resolution for the issue,
please let me know, and I'll close the bug. If you're not
satisfied with it, either let me know, or move the status of the
bug to "reopened" and add a comment there.
