Roger that. I'm trying to sort out our task here. You specifically
requested that we not include RFC2119 (MAY MUST MIGHT) or include the
word "implementation". I was persuaded by this that we could define a
language and that conformance could come from the protocol document.

If the plan is different, please advise. If we are expected to provide
a conformance section without MAY and MUST or talking about
implementations, I would like some help. I thought that this was the
conformance plan
  <http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-sparql-query/#grammar>:
[[
A SPARQL query string is a sequence of characters in the language
defined by the following grammar, starting with the Query production.
]]
Maybe s/query string/query/ and add?:
[[
The semantics of every SPARQL query are defined in this document. 
]]
