I have reviewed all these messages, and remain unclear as to the TAG's
motivation for commending a _solution_ (in the form of a subset) to
the Core WG, rather than asking them to address a (putative)
_requirement_.  I'd welcome clarification from you or any other TAG
member on this point

Or do you feel that the kind of approach I suggested (a new
conformance level, as opposed to a subset of the language) would
actually be in-scope for Core in response to the TAG's recommendation?
