What does this mean?

[[
Conforming XML user agent 
        
        A user agent that is a conforming user agent and also supports
        XML (including support for namespaces). 
]]

The XML spec defines conformance of documents and processors.
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xml-20060816/#sec-conformance

Is the XHR spec saying that conforming XHR user agents
are conforming XML processors? If so, it seems more clear
to say so:

  Every conforming user agent is a conforming _XML processor_.

with a link to http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xml-20060816/#dt-xml-proc


p.s. editorial suggestion: move the "If the user agent does not
support XML ..." bit out from under "Conforming user agent".
