Gavin, Eric,

Below is proposed text for the Conformance section of the Turtle spec. Use as you see fit.

This completes ACTION-173.

Best,
Richard


== Conformance ==

(Boilerplate)

This specification defines conformance criteria for:

   Turtle documents
   Turtle parsers

A conforming *Turtle document* is a Unicode string that conforms to the grammar and additional constraints defined in Section 5, starting with the turtleDoc production. A Turtle document serializes an RDF graph.

A conforming *Turtle parser* is a system capable of reading Turtle documents on behalf of an application. It makes the serialized RDF graph, as defined in Section 6, available to the application, usually through some form of API.

Note: This specification does not define how Turtle parsers handle non-conforming input documents.
