The intent of this is to mention which conformance classes are  
affected by the proposal. For example:

- Affects authoring conformance requirements.
- Affects conformance checkers.

Or:

- Affects browsers and other interactive user agents.

This section is not required. The Decision Policy just cites this as  
an example of the kind of content that might go in the Impact section.  
It can be helpful for readers of the Change Proposal, but ideally can  
already be inferred from other information.
