I suppose I was thinking that people who want to do it right
will use our schema fragments exactly as they come (and
so that's the conformance); while people who will hack
their stuff in hand won't care about conformance. You are
positing a group in between who roll their own, but want
a way to check they have done it right.

The conformance section could say "you have to
either use our schema fragments, or else what you
write has to implement exactly the same constraints as those
schema fragments".

What I am getting to is that our schema fragments _will_
be normative in some sense.
