I like your positivism ;)
But it has been shown... that making generic references are indeed a problem
for conformance.

For example,

	FooML 1.0 makes references to BarML, because it's using it.

BarML in the mean time goes from BarML 1.0 to BarML 2.0 and they change a
few things.

	FooML 1.0 has a broken conformance because the modification of BarML
2.0 makes it impossible to implement it in FooML 1.0.



But if you feel comfortable. Agreed.
