Possibly so, but I had never heard of it.  I found the source at [1].  It 
is from IEEE's Software Engineering Standards Committee, and the title is 
"IEEE Recommended Practice for Software Requirements Specifications".

If anyone is familiar with it and wanted to give a synopsis of 
applicability to conformance requirements in W3C standards ... such a 
contribution would be very welcome.
