I want implementation of conformance for use of XHR with XML to be in  
someone's test suite. It seems simplest to put it in the XHR test  
suite. Therefore it needs to be a normative requirement for some  
conformance class. I don't think this creates a problem for anyone as  
long as there is also a non-XML-supporting conformance class.
