[co-chair hat off]

The title of the bug report is "authoring conformance requirements in 
the spec should either be removed or replaced".  Given that title, I 
don't know what more information could possibly be needed.

Just to be clear: what I am seeking is rationale for the current 
authoring conformance requirements.  If this isn't the process for 
seeking rationale, please let me know what the process is.

The alternative, as I see it, is to take guesses as to what the intent 
is for the authoring conformance requirements, then make my own personal 
assessment as to whether the actual requirements meet my guess as to 
what the intent is, and then file bugs based on my guesses.

That does not seem like a sane alternative to me.
