When scanning the Test Suite Version of the P&C spec I noticed some  
MAY and OPTIONAL assertions for which there are no associated test  
assertions. This implies these "assertions" aren't really necessary  
and should be removed or made non-Normative (e.g. hints to an  
implementor).

Section 2:

[[
http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/Overview_TSE.html#conformance

A user agent MAY support other legacy/proprietary widget formats.
]]

Section 4:

[[
http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/Overview_TSE.html#user-agents

It is OPTIONAL for a user agent to support the optional aspects of  
the Zip specification.
]]


Section 7.11.1

[[
http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/Overview_TSE.html#the-content-element

Aside from the default encoding, it is OPTIONAL for a user agent to  
support other character encodings.
]]


Section 9:

[[
http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/Overview_TSE.html#steps-for- 
processing-a-widget-package

A user agent MAY optimize steps for processing a widget package and  
associated processing rules, or MAY perform the steps in a different  
order, but the end result MUST be indistinguishable from the result  
that would be obtained by following the specification.

It is OPTIONAL for a user agent to validate language tags against the  
IANA Language Subtag Registry during the steps for processing a  
widget package.
]]


Section 9.1.11

[[
http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/Overview_TSE.html#processing-rules

It is OPTIONAL for a user agent to support any of the media types  
listed in the media type identification table.
]]


Section 9.1.12

[[
http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/Overview_TSE.html#processing-rules

It is OPTIONAL for a user agent to support the media types given in  
the file identification table.
