Re: [csswg-drafts] [snapshot] Copy document conventions (and conformance?) from 2.1

Wouldn't the definition of how to read the propdef table be considered normative text (because if it isn't, propdefs do not have any unambiguously normative meaning)? That seems to exclude the snapshot as a host for them. If we were to start a css-core or css-meta spec of sorts, would there be anything else to put in there?

* https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/intro.html#q2.0
* https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/about.html#conventions
* https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/conform.html#text-css

> Relatedly, we copy the conformance boilerplate in every single module. Much of it used to be in snapshot, but was moved out when the snapshot was made non-normative. 

We already have the "Requirements for Responsible Implementation of CSS" subsection of the "Conformance" section. I agree with having the whole thing in there.
