OK. Think I get the picture. One last check just to make sure I got  
this right:

Lets say I want to make an HTML5 authoring tool that provides HTML5  
conformance checking.

I then have to write an application that somehow implements the prose  
of the HTML5 specification. How this is done is entirely up to me.  
The prose will be the only normative definition available.

After that I must continuously monitor the specification for fixes/ 
updates and update my application accordingly.

Most likely, however, I will not write this application myself, but  
obtain it from some third party vendor that performs the monitoring  
and supplies me with updates.

This means, in practice, that standard conformance will be  
administered by a number of third party vendors who will use  
different technologies and specification techniques of their own  
choice to check documents.

Is this a reasonable scenario?
