Bug 1057 [1] (that I classified as editorial and thus we didn't discuss
during the F2F) makes several editorial suggestions for the introductory
paragraphs of "Specifying conformance", which I thought were all good
and thus implemented in the document. The next text [2] reads:

   1. Specifying Conformance
   Conformance is the fulfillment of a product, process, or service of
   specified requirements. These requirements are detailed in a
   specification as part of a conformance clause and in the body of the
   specification. A conformance clause is a section of a specification
   that identifies all the criteria that must be satisfied in
   order to claim conformance to the specification.

   A clear presentation of conformance is crucial to successful
   interoperability of implementations. The conformance model and the
   language used for normative information determine the testability of
   a specification. They also influence the overall implementation
   landscape, ranging from a narrow conformance with few allowable
   variations in implementations to multiple conformance types,
   resulting in numerous conforming implementations. The model must be
   chosen carefully, to produce the intended implementation range

Comments welcome (I suggest this gets added to batch approval resolution
for next week otherwise).
