I'm not happy with this change at the beginning of the Conformance section:

<phrase diff="add">feature sets provided, supported specifications and
faithful description of how the processor is configured</phrase>
> <phrase diff="del">depending on its configuration</phrase>.

  An XML processor may conform to one or more of the profiles defined
  in this specification, depending on its configuration.

   -->

  An XML processor may conform to one or more of the profiles defined
  in this specification, depending on feature sets provided, supported
  specifications and faithful description of how the processor is
  configured

The point this para. was intended to convey was _just_ that one
processor might conform to more than one profile, depending on
configuration.  The proposed additional material just confuses things,
in my opinion.

I also find the new next paragraph confusing.  Could we have instead
simply

  Conformance conditions for each profile are specified in the
  corresponding sub-section of [ref. Section 2].
