Comment title: Avoid inline conformance criteria
Comment:
For example in section 4.6, Character Escaping, conformance criteria are inside a list, one list item for each item, while in e.g. section 4.4.2, Character encoding identification, these stick all together in one overly long paragraph. This makes it difficult to scan

the text, please don't combine more than two (or one?) conformance criteria in one paragraph and use lists instead.
