In the 1.0Rec/1.1WD, the contents listing for fo:declarations[1] 
requires at least one fo:color-profile child element:

Contents: (color-profile)+

However, there is an immediate qualification to this as follows:  
"The fo:declarations flow object may have additional child elements in a 
non-XSL namespace."

With this qualification, the requirement for at least one 
fo:color-profile seems strange.  Because you can use fo:declarations for 
non-XSL child elements, it is conceivable that a user could use 
fo:declarations precisely for this reason, with no concern or need of 

I recommend switching the fo:declarations contents listing to the following:

Contents: (color-profile)*

This makes the entry of an fo:color-profile optional, and similar in 
nature to the zero-or-more child FO requirements of fo:title, fo:block, 
fo:inline, and others.
