Re: [dxwg] Use of "standard" (#792)

This underscores the argument for talking about 'specifications' instead of 'standards'.  The level of authority of a specification is really up to the user, what is important is that there is some public documentation that makes it clear what 'conforming to x' (whether x is a spec or standard) means.

the sentence in the first comment in this thread would then read
"A specification can be either a Base Specification (not profiling any other specification) or a Profile (a specification that includes the provisions from some other specification (a base specification), with restrictions or additional logically consistent constraints)."
