When a technology is composed of multiple parts specifications like 
DOM Level 3, you might have a core document and some specific topics 
about the technology in separate spec.

I think that XPointer does it well, not DOM Level 3.

Example: Dom Level 3 - No TOC

+ Dom Level 3 Core 	http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-Core/
	Dom Level 3 Events	http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-Events/
	Dom Level 3 XPath	http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-XPath/

Dom Level 3 Events refer for its conformance section in the Overview Part
http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-DOM-Level-3-Events-20020712/DOM3-Events.html#events-Events-overview

which is at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-DOM-Level-3-Core-20020114/introduction.html#ID-Conformance

New XPointer is working on the same principles with a XPointer 
Framework (and not Core - need vocabulary???)

Example: XPointer - TOC

+ XPointer Framework 1.0	http://www.w3.org/TR/xptr-framework/
	Conf - http://www.w3.org/TR/xptr-framework/#b2b1b1b1

	XPointer element() Scheme http://www.w3.org/TR/xptr-element/
	Conf - http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-xptr-element-20020710/#conformance

	XPointer xmnls() Scheme http://www.w3.org/TR/xptr-xmlns/
	Conf - http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-xptr-xmlns-20020710/#conformance

Each individual XPointer specifications have Section and Toc which 
refer to the Conformance Section of the XPointer Framework.
