Which layer describes the required processing of the document that Boris 
mentioned to obtain interoperability on the issue he mentioned?

Specifically, which layer (specification) defines what the rendering of 
this URL should be, in terms of how the syntax or parsing affects whether 
there should be any bold text?:

data:text/xml,%3C?xml-stylesheet%20href=%22data:text/css,*{font-weight:bold}%22?%3E%3Croot%3Etext%20%3Couter%3Eouter%20%3Cinner%3Einner%3C/outer%3E
