QA WG,

AI-20050314-03: KD to synch QA Glossary with SpecGL Glossary in one 
week's time

The QA Glossary has been updated
	http://www.w3.org/QA/glossary

Added
	* Class of Products
	* Dimension of Variability
	* Discretionary item (changed in SpecGl from plural to singular)
	* Extension
	* Extensible
	* Implementation
	* Implementation conformance statement (ICS)
	* Level
	* Module
	* Profile
	* Specification
	* Strict Conformance
	* Testability


Modified (I have used the definition of Specification Guidelines to 
modify the definition of the QA glossary)


* Conformance:
	Old: The ability of a product to meet all the requirements claimed to 
be supported
	New: Fulfillment by a product, process, systems, or service of a 
specified  set of requirements.

* Conformance clause:
	Old: A part or collection of parts of a specification that defines the 
requirements, criteria, or conditions to be satisfied by an 
implementation in order to claim conformance.
	New: A section of the specification that defines the requirements,  
criteria, or conditions to be satisfied by an implementation in order 
to  claim conformance.

* Test Assertion
	Old: A statement of behavior, action, or condition that can be 
measured or       tested. It is derived from the specification's 
requirements and provides a normative foundation from which test cases 
can be built.
	New: A statement of behavior, action, or condition that can be 
measured or  tested. It is derived from the specification's 
requirements.
