I would encourage developer because implementor is a computing 
neologism.

One technique with different steps. but I see why there is a problem. I 
have made this change. We don't loose the meaning but it's reorganized 
a bit.

1. Define your conformance model and identify the conformance labels 
you are using.
2. Write down all information identifying uniquely the specification:
	2.1 the specification name,
	2.2 the specification version,
	2.3 the specification date.
3. Provide a template in the specification of the conformance claims, 
with unique identification of the specification (2.1 to 2.3) and which 
includes placeholders for the following:
	3.1 the  satisfied conformance label,
	3.2 information about the subject which is claiming conformance,
	3.3 the date of the claim.
4. Add wording in your specification which requires that conformance 
claims contains this information.
