My take is that the spec makes a confusion between "marked as bad
practice in a note" and "normatively described as non conformant". I
think the spec should stick with the former and let the latter only to
machine checkable criteria. No editing tool, filter or parser will ever
be able to enforce the latter for prose-level criteria.
