Much clearer.   It violates ISO definition guidelines (that say that the
definition should be able to replace the word in a sentence) because of the
second sentence.    But this is the best working definition in that it seems
to clearly define for us what we mean.     

I would suggest we use this one until we can (hopefully) combine the two
sentences into one.

Let's try this again:

A minimum set of technologies assumed in the design of Web content to be
supported by, and enabled in, all user agents capable of providing a user
interface for the content. Only user agents in which every technology in the
baseline is supported and enabled can present the information in and allow a
user to operate the functionality of the content.

Is this clearer?
