Maybe we should drop that section from the template, but the intent is that it mentions what conformance classes are affected by the change described in Details.

However, it does not seem like the Change Proposal as written would have this effect. Specifically, the current spec language only suppresses Referer when following a hyperlink, but certain relations on the<link>  element, such as rel="stylesheet" or rel="icon", create an external resource link rather than a hyperlink:

I was pretty sure that was what you meant, but the previous text was potentially ambiguous. Thanks for the update.
