Whatever methods we allow, they need to be unambiguous. One solution
would be to permit regular expressions:

The resource at every URI matching http://trace.wisc.edu/public/.*
conforms to xxx
except for [explicit list of exceptions (which may themselves be
regular expressions)]

A simple program could then take a URI and determine whether it was in
the scope of the conformance claim or not.
