Why I like the definitions of Lynne.

because it's compact. Some people run away of our QA Framework, for 
two reasons, I guess.
The first one is that we are often too verbose, the second one 
because our language is not very pleasant (boring to read).

======================
Class of Product:

	The generic name for the group of products that would 
implement, for the same purposes, the specification, i.e., target of 
the specification. The class of product is the object of the 
conformance claim.

	Example: A class of product of the XHTML Modularization 
Specification can be "authoring tools". Another class of product can 
be a W3C Specification using the XHTML Modularization modules.
