Summary: There are cases where a checkpoint must be marked not
applicable, since meeting the checkpoint would contradict the purpose of
some content. We should provide examples of where this makes sense, and
where it does not.

GV: Thanks Charles for this format (summary first).  Very helpful

So do we
a) list specifically those conditions under which conformance can be
achieved by just saying that some checkpoints are N/A
b) leave it up to the authors to decide when they can ignore a
checkpoint and still claim conformance
c) something else ?
