Hi all,

I had an action item to post some example for the "basic" vs "more complete" conformance indicator. (link to the issue 2621:
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=2621). Here it is:

The example below shows a DocBook document using the ITS namespace with only in-situ information. The attribute
its:markupType="basic-only" is the potential additional attribute that would indicate to the ITS processors that the document is
defined in such a way and can be processed by both "basic" and "normal" processors.

It would be an error to have any dislocated ITS information (i.e. <its:rules>) [and any scope attributes if we say the basic
conformance does not require the use of scope attributes] in the document. ITS basic processors would ignore them, ITS normal
processor would generate a warning in such case.

An attribute its:markupType="normal" (or its absence at the root elemen) for example, could indicate that both in-situ and
dislocated ITS information are allowed (nor necessarily present) and processors conforming only to the basic process would generate
an error if it does not find its:markupType="in-situ-only".

The name "markupType" is obviously just an example: processType, etc. may be better name depending on what exactly they covert and
how we would link all this to conformance.
