This is from my action from RDFCore teleconference 2003-07-18

Intended to go in (latest version of) http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-syntax-grammar/
probably as a new subsection of section 5 "Global Issues"
http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-syntax-grammar/#section-Global
(in editor's draft
 http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/RDFCore/TR/WD-rdf-syntax-grammar-20030117/#section-Global )

--------
5.X. Document Conformance (Normative)

Definition:
  An *RDF Document* is a serialization of an _RDF Graph_
  [ http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-concepts/#dfn-rdf-graph ]
  into a concrete syntax.

Definition:
  An *RDF/XML Document* is an  _RDF Document_ written in the
  recommended XML transfer syntax for RDF as defined in this document.

Conformance:
  An RDF/XML document is a conforming RDF/XML document if it adheres
  to the specification defined in this document.

??Maybe add??
  .. and MUST NOT use any of rdf:bagID, rdf:aboutEach,
  rdf:aboutEachPrefix or non-namespaced attributes.

??Maybe add??
  ... with no extensions.


All of the _Positive Parser Tests_
[ http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-testcases/#tc_org ]
in the _RDF Test Cases_ [ http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-testcases/ ]
are conforming RDF/XML documents.

None of the _Negative Parser Tests_ 
[ http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-testcases/#tc_org ]
in the RDF Test Cases [ http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-testcases/ ]
are conforming RDF/XML documents.

I checked
  QA Framework: Specification Guidelines
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-qaframe-spec-20030210/

for info.  Conformance is mostly Guidelines 2 & 3.
