I have a slight preference to hold all conformance issues and terms at one place. There is problem in creating subsections to the 'standard' conformance heading, and then adding a subsection for terminologies that are relevant for a specific spec only. See, for example, the way it was done in the Annotation spec[1].

But it is only a preference, nothing more.
