Added the following:

   conforming implementation
     A UA that implements all interfaces described in this
     specification and follows all MUST-, REQUIRED- and SHALL-level
     of critera in this specification.
   conforming document
     A document that follows all MUST-, REQUIRED- and SHALL-level
     of critera in this specification that apply to document
   conforming authoring tool
     One that produces conforming documents.

Now the last two are probably a bit meaningless as I've heard various  
people say that it's virtually impossible to check if a document is  
conforming once scripting is involved, but having them doesn't hurt I  
think. I'm also happy with dropping them though.
