ldp-ISSUE-31 (conformance): Proper Conformance section for LDP spec [Linked Data Platform core]

http://www.w3.org/2012/ldp/track/issues/31

Raised by: Richard Cyganiak
On product: Linked Data Platform core

Like any good spec, LDP needs a proper conformance section. The current one only has a bit of boilerplate.

It seems to me that LDP puts conformance constraints (statements involving MUST, SHOULD, MAY, etc.) on two kinds of artefacts: LDP servers and LDP clients. The Conformance section should explicitly list those two as Conformance Classes.

See http://www.w3.org/TR/sparql11-protocol/#conformance for an example from another spec. (It's a matter of taste whether the Conformance section contains all conformance statements, or whether it only says that all conformance statements made throughout the spec apply.)
