New issue? Character model conformance

The current daft of the w3c Character Model
contains wording:

"All W3C specifications must conform to this document (see section 2 
Conformance). Authors of other specifications (for example, IETF 
specifications) are strongly encouraged to take guidance from it."

It has been pointed out that it is inappropriate for a technical 
specification to make procedural requirements on working groups as that 
above.  However, what would be appropriate would be for the TAG to find 
and to include in the architecture document that the character model be 

Therefore I propose that the TAG include words to the effect in the 
architecture document,
or in the mean time create an issue about it.

I expect the group to send email along these lines independently.
