Since the document should only document conclusions drawn from normative
statements made elsewhere, the Polyglot document itself should not be
normative, because there's a risk of erroneous conclusions getting held up
as normative and leading to confusion (especially since it's not a given
that change control on te Polyglot document is strictly enough controlled
to avoid errors and since there's a real risk of people asking for
restrictions stricter than the minimal logical consequences from normative
text elsewhere).
