Sorry for being unclear. Conformance level one is identical to what is  
already in the draft, see http://www.w3.org/TR/its/#schema-conformance :  
You are conformant if you add the ITS declarations for data categories to  
your schema, and your instances are valid against the schema. The thing is  
that we have not yet defined what an "ITS application", see also my  
bugzilla comment at http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=2621#c4  
, starting with "One important difference ...". I think our discussion  
about conformance is unconciously (?!?) a discussion about what an ITS  
processor should do :)

my point for level to is that we have to define the behavior of an "ITS  
processor". The processor can be part of a tool, like an SVG engine can be  
part of a browser. Even if we don't called it a processor: after all we  
are specifying processing behavior which goes beyong validation against  
the ITS schema.

Regards, Felix.
