Hello QA IG,

While reviewing the Last Call version of XInclude [1], I thought that
the markup conventions used in the text were good enough that I could
extract the relevant conformance information using an XSLT; and indeed:
http://www.w3.org/2004/04/xinclude-confreq.xsl allows to extract the
said information:
http://www.w3.org/2000/06/webdata/xslt?xslfile=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2F2004%2F04%2Fxinclude-confreq.xsl&xmlfile=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2FTR%2F2003%2FWD-xinclude-20031110%2F&transform=Submit

This is just food for thoughts on the topic of marking up conformance
requirements in specification to allow easier reviewing of their
contents and evaluation of their test suites; FWIW, I have at least 2
other recent examples of equivalent tools:
"""
I built a quick XSLT that
allows to extract the conformance requirements from our GL docs, relying
on our markup conventions; the XSLT is at:

extracted from the document the list of constraints/principle/good
practices (attached as text) - using a simplistic xslt also attached.
