I think it's really just in part 1, as it's just information and
guidelines.

No, I'm not making those assumptions at all.  Module authors MUST give a
name (a URI) to their Modules.  That's all.  They MAY also decide to
indicate in the Module spec that certain abstract Features are
implemented by this Module, but they don't have to.
