OK, how about the first _two_ paras simply become

 Conformance to this specification means conformance by XML processors
 to profiles, as specified in [ref. section 2].

 how it is configured.  The conformance conditions for any specific
 processor configuration with respect to each profile are specified in
 the corresponding sub-section of [ref. Section 2].
