Simon and I have agreed that we should try the following -- remove the
bit about applications from the second bullet in the Conformance
section and add a new bullet:


       An xml-stylesheet processor may be part of a larger XML
       application, or may function independently. In either case,
       [Definition: an *application* is the consumer of the
       pseudo-attribute analysis defined in this specification.]

       A detailed specification of how applications exploit the
       information contained in xml-stylesheet processing instructions
       is out of scope for this document, as this may reasonably vary
       from application to application.  Accordingly this
       specification places no conformance requirements on

       It is however expected that specifications governing the use of
       stylesheet languages will reference _this_ specification in
       describing how applications may identify stylesheets for
       use. Such specifications are expected to specify
       interpretations for the values (or absense of value) of those
       pseudo-attributes which they make use of, doing so in a way
       that is as consistent as possible with those pseudo-attribute's
       descriptions in _4 The xml-stylesheet processing instruction_,
       insofar as this makes sense for the application in question.
