Beginning web authors are going to be reading this document, and rather
than confuse them with the URI/IRI/URL distinction, I used what I think
is the most colloquial form of saying "identifier" among Web authors -
"URL". I checked the document for consistency and believe we use "URL"
everywhere.

That is the boilerplate ReSpec text for the conformance section.

If we are going to change this, I suggest we change it in ReSpec. I
think the wording is fine, but will trip up Editors who forget to mark
all of their non-normative sections with class="informative".

Thoughts?

Fixed.

Thank you for taking the time to review this document, Shane (and
Ivan!). Please let us know if these changes have satisfied your concerns
by Wednesday, February 1st 2012 (the day before we decide to enter the
