Hi Everyone,
So as discussed last night - here are the threads to the discussion 2 
years ago (2 YEARS - has it been that long!). Anyhow, I'm sure there has 
been some discussion after this.

You'll notice that I give conditions which must be fulfilled for the 
software to be classed as a user agent and therefore must conform to the 
guidelines. We also discussed if some agents needed to conform to 
subsets of the guidelines -- which we dropped. Seems like it is time to 
revive this using conditions to classify the type of UA and then a spec 
of the set of guidelines required for conformance...

Cheers
