The initial proposal for Issue-177 is:

Add a link to Appendix D, Table E-2 that links the mandatory processing semantics to those of the mandatory features listed in Appendix D, Table E-2, see: http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/REC-ttaf1-dfxp-20101118/#feature-support.


”The processor supports all mandatory processing semantics defined by this specification in Appendix D, Table E-2<http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/REC-ttaf1-dfxp-20101118/#feature-support> [link].”

This is a catch all (boilerplate) clause that simply means that every statement in the specification that can be reasonably interpreted as a normative requirement on processing semantics must be so interpreted. We are not going to enumerate these cases. That is, enumerating would be equivalent to specifying all assertable requirements in the spec, which is not done in the W3C.

So I would suggest we close this issue and take no action unless someone has a very specific proposal.
