Thank you for your comment. The editor's draft now has a conformance
section [CNF]. Since SPARQL Query does not define an implementation,
we rely on SPARQL Protocol to define conformance.
[[
B Conformance

See appendix A grammar regarding conformance of _SPARQL Query
strings_, and section 10 Query Result Forms for conformance of query
results. See appendix E. Internet Media Type for conformance to the
application/sparql-query media type.

This specification is intended for use in conjuction with the SPARQL
Protocol [SPROT] and the SPARQL Query Results XML Format
[RESULTS]. See those specifications for their conformance criteria.

Note that the SPARQL protocol describes an abstract interface as well
as a network protocol, and the abstract interface may apply to APIs as
well as network interfaces.
]]

If this is satisfactory, please indicate so in a response (with
[CLOSED] in the subject, if you wish). If not, please send more 
feedback.
