5) sounds like a variation of 2) to me, except the "ignore the notes on
conformance" part.

Of course we could drop the conformance part. The question is only: Do
we want to give people who create ITS+mySchema a means to check if they
have don the right job? If "yes", we need a separate schema conformance

My impression was that such a check would be helpful. Maybe it is not?
