Good catch, Jason, thanks. Here's one more tweak to make the point
unmistakable (I hope...):

[was]All Web units within the scope of conformance. 
[new]All Web units within the scope of the conformance claim.

Or, to avoid the possibility of interpreting this as meaning the text of
the conformance claim: <blockquote> All Web units within the scope of
conformance. </blockquote>

Somewhere in the guidelines it should be clarified that if a conformance
claim refers only to a single WEb unit, which is linked to other Web
units subject to conformance claims by the same entity, then all such
Web units are aggregated for the purpose of determining the "scope of
conformance".
