How would conformance be demonstrated/known if not through the mechanism of a 
conformance claim?  (NOTE: conformance claims are specifically mentioned in 
the context of conformance in QA SpecGL Rec Section 2: Specifying Conformance 
[1]..)

Do we have a set of "metadata terms" to describe baselines, so that baseline 
knowledge can be communicated as unambiguously and objectively as possible
across multiple parties/interests, and so that baseline information can 
be "managed" effectively?

Apologies if these items have been discussed previously.. 

Thanks and best wishes
